Friday, October 18, 2019 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


*This program is eligible for ethics credits.

This program will cover the issues and challenges presented in settling mass torts, including:

  • balancing corporate defendants' desire and need for finality,
  • the ethical issues faced by counsel representing multiple plaintiffs,
  • the right of individual plaintiffs to make fully informed, independent decisions
  • and the proper role of courts outside of the class action context.

Presenter Rich Oetheimer is a Goodwin partner who practices in drug and device litigation. During his almost forty years of trying and settling mass torts, Rich Oetheimer worked on the first mass tort certified as a class action, tried cases for one of the first bankruptcy mass tort trusts, and negotiated and implemented a coordinated nationwide settlement of thousands of pharmaceutical claims pending in multiple jurisdictions.
