The authors discuss the challenges facing attorneys in class action representation matters, including the impact of laws such as the Federal Arbitration Act and the Class Action Fairness Act. From analyzing the client's objective and developing a persuasive presentation to strategies for deciding on settlement or negotiation and guiding dispute resolution, these top laywers examine how class actions come about, how to avoid them, and how to best approach them once they occur. The different niches represented and the breadth of perspectives presented enable readers to get inside some of the great legal minds of today, as these experienced lawyers offer up their thoughts around the keys to navigating this constantly-changing area of law.
