We are pleased to announce that Troutman Sanders attorneys Ashley Taylor and Tim Butler will participate in a webinar panel discussion hosted by the American Bar Association on “State Attorneys General Series: Enforcement Agencies Confront Class Actions.” The event will take place on December 5, 2017 from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. ET.

The still vibrant debate about the value of class actions has typically polarized the legal community. One side argues that class actions serve no legitimate purpose, as enriching class-action lawyers is not a legitimate purpose. The other side argues that class actions are essential to the preservation of rights, and that there is no other legal mechanism sufficient to accomplish what class actions accomplish.

This program dives into the debate about the value of class actions with state and federal regulators who work in the trenches to promote class action fairness. These regulators receive your CAFA notices, review your proposed settlements, and sometimes try to torpedo them. This webinar is your chance to hear from them them about their process and what they consider in their review.
