Online CLE Mass Torts Litigation

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Mass Torts Litigation Webinar. A large number of mass torts filed over the previous year involve drugs including Xarelto, Risperdal, Opioids and Pradaxa.  One notable case is the mass tort against pharmaceutical giant Hoffmann La-Roche with over 500 lawsuits claiming that users of the company’s acne drug Accutane, developed inflammatory bowel disease. The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hoffmann La-Roche with its dismissal of the mass tort case. The Court said that the plaintiffs failed to prove that Roche failed to provide internal research to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Understanding mass tort case verdicts such as this, as well as the upcoming ones, is critical in devising effective litigation strategies.

Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of bringing or defending against a mass tort lawsuit and as they delve into the depth-analysis of the current trends and recent court rulings. Speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies in bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Mass Torts Litigation – Overview and Statistics
