Greenberg Traurig Shareholder, Rob Herrington, will be speaking at Strafford's "Litigation Tactics to Defeat Class Certification: Leveraging Pleadings, Evidence and Settlement Mechanisms" CLE webinar on Tuesday, September 25. This CLE webinar will discuss several tools and tactics available to practitioners to defeat class actions during the certification stage.
