    Event Synopsis:
    Typically, class action settlements play as an important vehicle for the involved parties to effectively manage uncertainties, inconveniences, litigation costs and risks. By providing class members the opportunity to present objections to settlements, both parties are guaranteed with fair attention and scrutiny. In recent years, however, this procedure has been tarnished by the emergence of professional objectors who exploit objections by filing meritless appeals in order to extract a payoff. As these frivolous objections often slow down the execution of settlements, keeping abreast with the recent class action settlement trends and developments is important to ward off potential risks and legal pitfalls.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends; critical issues and best practices with respect to Class Action Settlement Objections. Speakers will also offer key preventive measures against professional objectors while ensuring compliance with class action laws.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    -Class Action Settlements - Overview
    -Recent Class Action Settlement Objections
    -Significant Issues and Trends
    -Possible Implications
    -Key Considerations and Best Practices
