Cohen Milstein Partner Sharon K. Robertson will participate on a panel titled, "Class Action Settlements for Antitrust Practitioners and In-house Counsel" at the Practising Law Institute’s (PLI) Class Action Litigation 2017 Program on June 21, 2017.  The panel will focus on the following topics:

  • Impact of common interest and judgment sharing agreements in multi-defendant cases
  • Role of individual settlements in multi-defendant cases and use of most-favored nation clauses
  • Scope of release (e.g., types of claims covered, adding new claims, and addressing future claims)
  • Impact of government (e.g., stand-alone claims, parens patriae claims, and notice obligations)
  • Protecting your settlement (e.g., court approval, dealing with opt outs, and buying global peace)
