Resolving the Complex Dispute: ADR and MDLS (and Class Actions and More)

The vast majority of cases in the federal court system are consolidated in multi-district litigation; class actions are abundant; mass torts are the subject of dozens of conferences, seminars, and debate, with cases filed in multiple state and federal jurisdictions; and multi-party cases involving disputes over vast sums of money are increasingly prevalent. These types of disputes present unique challenges for the judges and court systems. In one recent case, the judge noted that it could take decades (or longer) to try all the cases that had been filed. This program will provide practical insights on how to position these complex cases for resolution and the use of ADR techniques to assist. The panel includes practitioners and experienced neutrals who will address the particular issues that arise in the context of major class actions, MDL cases, insurance recovery cases involving multiple insurers, and mass tort consolidations. The panel will illustrate procedures and techniques using "real life" examples and will provide important lessons learned from experience.
