Please join practitioners from our Litigation and Labor & Employment Departments as they present a webinar on last week's Supreme Court decision in AT&T Mobility, LLC. v. Concepcion, which held that federal law preempts state law rules banning class action waivers in arbitration agreements. The AT&T Mobility ruling raises opportunities for companies to minimize and manage their exposure to class action litigation

The webinar will address the following topics in analyzing the Supreme Court's opinion:

  • How the ruling in AT&T Mobility impacts class action waivers in the context of both employment arbitration agreements, consumer agreements and commercial contracts.
  • How to design, implement, and enforce pre-dispute arbitration agreements to avoid class action arbitrations without running afoul of other laws.
  • Likely strategies the plaintiffs' bar and government enforcement agencies are apt to pursue in the wake of AT&T Mobility.
