Structuring Class Settlements to Obtain Court Approval
Attorney Fees, Notice, Claims Rates, Coupon Settlements, Incentive Awards, and More
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will examine how parties in class litigation can structure class settlement agreements to overcome courts' increasing rejection of such agreements and obtain approval. The program will analyze recent court treatment of attorneys' fees; notice and claims-response rates; cy pres and coupon settlements; incentive awards; and claims-made and reversionary settlements.
- Notice and claims forms
- Claims rates
- Coupon settlements
- Cy pres relief
- Claims made, reversionary settlements
- Incentive awards
- Attorney fees
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How are courts currently dealing with cy pres awards, coupons, and conditional incentive awards in proposed class settlements?
- What are court objections to low claim response rates?
- What should all counsel consider concerning the benefit to the class when setting attorney fees?
