This webinar provides a behind-the-scenes look at how trial lawyers think and operate. It will provide you the understanding necessary to take steps to counter the tactics of trial lawyers and also keep your businesses off the trial lawyers’ radar.

Where do lawsuits come from? How does your company become a target for a major class action or products liability lawsuit? How do plaintiff’s lawyers find cases and clients, and are there steps that can be taken to make your company less of target?

Instructor Profile:

Rob Herrington, is a consumer products defense lawyer. He chairs the Products Liability and Mass Torts practice at the international law firm of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, where he focuses on defending consumer products and consumer financial services companies in class actions, products liability lawsuits and other complex litigation. Rob is the author of the best-selling book “Verdict for the Defense” (Sutton Hart Press 2011), which provides a blueprint for business leaders to prevent and defend against class action and mass tort litigation.

Topic Background:

The American tort system is one of the dangerous and expensive in the world, with an estimated cost of $248.1 billion in 2009 alone (the last year studied). Class actions. Mass-tort lawsuits. Products liability litigation. Plaintiff’s lawyers file these cases in the hopes of putting enough pressure on a company and its insurers that they will buckle and pay millions in attorneys’ fees just to bring the litigation to an end. New product lines and once-promising careers often drown in the wake.
