Duane Morris Class Action Review – 2024

The 2024 Review analyzes rulings from all state and federal courts in 23 areas of law. It is designed as a reader-friendly research tool that is easily accessible in hard copy and e-Book formats. Class action rulings from throughout the year are analyzed and organized into 23 chapters and 6 appendices for ease of analysis and reference.

The stakes at issue in class action litigation are often significant. A company’s market share and corporate reputation are typically implicated by a class action, as are the careers of senior management. For obvious reasons, these exposures and risks put immense pressure on corporate decision-makers.

The purpose of the Duane Morris Class Action Review is multi-faceted. We hope it will demystify some of the complexities of class action litigation, and keep corporate counsel updated on the ever-evolving nuances of Rule 23 issues. In this respect, we hope this book will provide our clients with an analysis of trends and significant rulings that enable them to make informed decisions in dealing with complex litigation risks.
