Jason Lichtman to Speak at CAOC 9th Annual Class Action Seminar

The Consumer Attorneys of California, College of Trial Arts, San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association, and Bar Association of San Francisco present the 9th Annual Class Action Seminar on February 10, 2015 at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco. Lieff Cabraser attorney Jason Lichtman is one of the distinguished attorneys speaking at the seminar. Lichtman will discuss how to prove uniform damages post-Comcast in products class actions.

Other topics that will be covered at the class action seminar include: what you need to know about Rule 68, what’s hot and what’s not in evaluating potential class actions, the ethical rules and decisions about marketing and settlement, latest developments in class action administration, understanding multi-district litigation, reaching settlements that benefit the class, and the importance of class actions in American jurisprudence.

Lichtman is a partner in Lieff Cabraser’s New York office with a practice focused on consumer protection and defective products class actions. His current cases include Dover, et al. v. British Airways, No. 12cv5567 (E.D.N.Y.), which involves claims for allegedly wrongful fuel surcharges and In re Whirlpool Front-Load Washer Products Litigation, MDL No. 2001 (N.D. Ohio), which involves allegedly defective washing machines.

Lichtman has worked extensively to address the challenges of proving uniform damages following Comcast. He has experience with damages both in settlement and litigation, and he has been involved in a range of cases working on damages issues from inception, or after an initial damages model proved flawed. Lichtman has experience with a wide variety of class-wide damages measures, and has been particularly successful working to prove damages with a combination of survey data and economic analysis.
