Online CLE Class Litigation

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CLE Class Litigation Webinar. Over the past years, statutory damages were used as a remedy in consumer protection and intellectual property laws. However, these remedies could be abused and misused as they provide plaintiffs with significant procedural advantages. Plaintiffs can be awarded with statutory damages without requiring them to prove the monetary value of the damage and injury. When claims or parties are aggregated, statutory damages may also expand the potential liabilities of defendants. Furthermore, without the Supreme Court's clear guidance on statutory damages and the continued evolution of the class action landscape, businesses may also be confronted with various challenges and threats. Thus, keeping abreast with the recent trends and developments is crucial to avoid potential legal pitfalls and risks.

In this Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to Statutory Damages in Class Litigation.  Speakers will also offer best practices in establishing effective defense strategies while ensuring compliance with applicable laws.
