Monday, April 23, 2018 | 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM EST

Improving Client Control: How Technology Can Bring Order to Chaos

With online mass tort databases, how you collaborate and coordinate with litigants beyond your firm is being revolutionized. This panel will discuss how to use data to your advantage and why it’s important to collect and organize information electronically about your case from day one. They will offer best practices on connecting the dots that is, working with disaggregated people on a mass dispute. On the subject of “Designer Case Collection,” you will learn about using state of the art technology to build plaintiff profiles. Finally, they will discuss how to best keep plaintiffs informed and updated.

Special Damages Issues: Lessons From Large Mass Tort & Catastrophic Environmental Claims Resolutions
Monday, April 23, 2018 | 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM EST

Extraordinary Injury Funds, or “EIF” programs, are widely applied in large mass tort settlements. What can we learn from cases involving pharmaceutical or medical devices? The panel will share their insights on this critical topic, as well as the calculation of economic losses in a settlement context, drawing on lessons learned from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, the BP Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program, and other economic loss settlements. The will close with a discussion of punitive damages in the context of large tort and environmental claims resolutions.

Hon. Richard A. Levie (Ret.)

Using Data Analytics in Litigation Strategy: The Numbers Don’t Lie
Monday, April 23, 2018 | 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM EST

Using analytics as a tool to analyze historical data on similar cases will aid lawyers in better forecasting liabilities and outcomes. Analytical data also provides defendants with a strong guideline in terms of claims evaluation. Can you calculate if the company can settle? Predictive analytics as a particularly useful tool in demonstrating to an arbitrator or mediator the rationality of the defendant’s valuation and/or the unreasonableness of the plaintiff’s valuation. This kind of work is done in many contexts, such as legal finance and developing litigation budgets. Join our panel for valuable insights in this developing field.
