Nicholas Diamand Discusses Ethical Risks in Class Litigation

Lieff Cabraser attorney Nicholas Diamand will be speaking at a live 90-minute CLE webinar, sponsored by Strafford, with interactive Q&A on February 10, 2015. The webinar will discuss the ethical risks involved in class litigation, and the strategies for both plaintiff and defense counsel to avoid ethics violations and malpractice liability.

Featured panelists speaking at the webinar will examine the ethical rules associated with communication with class members, attorneys’ fees, and non-monetary class benefits.

Diamand is a partner in Lieff Cabraser’s New York office with a practice focused on securities and consumer fraud cases. He is actively involved in the firm’s representation of the California Board of Regents in securities fraud litigation against AIG. His present and past case work concerning consumer fraud includes digital privacy litigation against Facebook and LinkedIn, among others; the firm’s cases against the nation’s largest banks for their unfair and deceptive practices to maximize the occurrence of overdraft fees; and the litigation of gas royalty underpayment claims in which plaintiffs recovered more than $100 million in cash and future benefits.
