UNSTACKING THE DECK: BUILDING DEFENSE WINS IN A PLAINTIFF-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS AND MASS TORTS WORLD
The legal landscape of product liability and mass torts law is continuously in flux, and the plaintiffs’ bar is prepared to use that to its advantage. Winston & Strawn’s annual Product & Mass Torts Summit, streaming live on June 7, 2022, will explore effective strategies for taking advantage of those changes and combating plaintiffs’ maneuvers.
The Summit starts with the pre-litigation stages of the compliance curve on EPA, FDA, and other federal regulations. We move on to explore strategies for evaluating scientific evidence and its role in causation defenses and discuss evolving tactics in MDLs, including the trend of public nuisance claims. Moving into the courtroom, Winston’s leading trial lawyers lend insight into preparing corporate witnesses for trial and setting up appeals. The Summit’s final panel brings together Fortune 500 in-house counsel to offer their perspectives on the realities of mass torts litigation.
