A Comprehensive Guide on Consumer Class Action Litigation: Practical Tips and Strategies Explored
Recording Available: Thursday, August 13, 2020
Class action lawsuits have continued to take a significant portion of high-stakes litigation in recent years. This trend is expected to increase more dramatically now with the unique legal challenges posed by COVID-19. The pandemic resulted in a surge of cases that cover a wide range of claims with particular focus on false labeling practices, price gouging, consumer contract changes, unrefunded recurring fees, and data privacy law violations.
Businesses should be mindful of the emerging litigation risks and be very careful with their actions. Activities that can lead to consumer class actions claiming that they are taking advantage of their customers during the COVID-19 crisis, should be avoided.
In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of recent consumer class action litigation developments, especially those related to COVID-19. Speakers will also present significant issues affecting the rise of class action lawsuits as well as practical tips and strategies to cope with this rapidly evolving field of law.
