Upcoming Conference on Negotiating Mass Tort Settlements
Mealey's is sponsoring a conference on The Art of Negotiation: Successfully Negotiating Mass Tort & Class Action Settlements in Los Angeles on Jan. 29-30, 2007. I'll be speaking about ethical constraints on multiparty settlements, particularly the aggregate settlement rule and the prohibition against practice restrictions. It looks like a good line-up of speakers. Some of the other participants are Richard Scruggs (who's speaking about the Sulzer hip implant settlement as a case study), Mary Ellen Nickel (who's speaking about asbestos settlement trusts), and Barry Hill, Matthew Garretson, and John Restaino (all of whom are speaking about pharmaceutical mass tort settlements).
