In addition to the hands-on practical knowledge all course attendees receive, we are privileged to have an all-star panel of attorney speakers discussing current, emerging and ongoing Mass Tort litigations.

Best of all, this program will be interactive.  There will be ample Q&A after each presentation.

Whether you have dabbled in Mass Torts or are new to the practice area, the “Four Day Mass Tort Success Course” will help you avoid common mistakes, while giving you a road map to success in Mass Torts.  We teach you a step by step process to make sure you understand the methods and metrics of this practice area.

RoundUp Cancer Emerging Litigation 

Timothy Litzenberg will be addressing the emerging RoundUp Cancer litigation. Timothy filed one of the original complaints in district court on behalf of a client who developed cancer after exposure to RoundUp. He is also one of the attorneys supporting the Plaintiffs’ motion to consolidate and transfer (i.e., to form an MDL) currently before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation.

In district court, Monsanto failed to derail the RoundUp litigation. Monsanto, as well as Plaintiffs attorneys including Tim have now separately moved to support the formation of an MDL. This emerging Toxic Tort may involve more plaintiffs than any in history. Do not miss out on the chance to get information on this litigation in its early
IVC Filter Product Liability Litigation

John Dalimonte now serves on the Steering Committee of the Cook Medical IVC filter litigation and the Bard IVC filter Litigation. He will be speaking about  the Cook and Bard IVC litigations, as well as other ongoing and emerging IVC Filter Litigation, which involve more IVC manufacturers. John has served in leadership positions on a number of MDLs and was Co-Lead Counsel in the Vioxx product liability litigation.

The IVC filter litigation may be one of the largest mass product liability litigation’s of all time, with respect to the number of plaintiffs and payouts. This litigation puts the “complex” in complex litigation and the opportunity to interact with one of the leading attorneys in this case is invaluable.
Proton Pump Inhibitor Product Liability Litigation

Bryan Aylstock will present the emerging Proton Pump Inhibitor litigation. Bryan is currently serving as one of three coordinating Co-Lead Counsel members charged with overseeing five separate Multi-District Litigations (MDLs), involving the use of TVM products. Additionally, Bryan has served in leadership positions in the Zoloft product liability litigation, the Avandia product liability litigation, as well as other MDLs.

Bryan is an outstanding lawyer and arguably one of the best business minds in Mass Torts. The opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an emerging litigation with guidance from a tested Mass Tort gladiator is worth the trip to Fort Lauderdale.

 Risperdal Product Liability Litigation

Derek Braslow will be speaking about the Risperdal product liability litigation. Derek now serves as Liaison Counsel in the Risperdal litigation and has served in many Court-appointed leadership positions in other pharmaceutical litigations. He has been in leadership positions on many MDLs, including Co-Liaison Counsel Zimmer Durom Hip Cup, as well as leadership positions in the Levaquin product liability litigation and the Paxil suicide litigation.

The Risperdal litigation is not a typical Mass Tort litigation. Derek’s insights on the Risperdal case will give knowledge and information that will be useful far beyond this single litigation.
Talcum Powder Product Liability Litigation
James Onder will be speaking on the subject of the Talcum Powder litigation. He is one of the lead attorneys in the City of Saint Louis consolidation, which has already produced multiple Jury verdicts exceeding fifty million dollars each.
James, and other members of his firm, have served as co-lead counsel and in various leadership positions on many MDLs. The opportunity to hear James speak about a difficult litigation, that he and his co-counsel firms managed to achieve massive jury awards in will be  an opportunity you won’t want  to miss.  
Xarelto Litigation
Stryker Hip Litigation “Life After the MDL”

Joseph Osborne will be speaking on the Stryker Hip Litigation, as well as other Hip Implant litigation. Long after other firms stopped accepting or seeking clients for the metal on metal hip implant litigations, Joseph continued to accept clients who were, and continue to be, injured by these defective products.He served in leadership positons on the Stryker Nexgen Knee MDL, the Biomet M2 Hip MDL, the Stryker Hip MDL, the American Medical System TVM MDL, as well as many other multidistrict litigations.

Joe also serves on the Science Committee in the Xarelto MDL and will be providing information about this litigation.
Taxotere, Onglyza and Fluoroquinolones
Ryan Thompson will round out the panel speaking and answering questions about three litigations every firm should be considering.  Not yet forty years old, Ryan has already achieved a record of achievements, that most lawyers would consider a stellar lifetime career. He served as Co-Lead Counsel on the Incretin Memetics Litigation, as well as in leadership positions on many MDLs. Ryan is often involved in emerging litigations in a major way. His grasp of the science involved in pharmaceutical and medical device litigation and his willingness to take risks have resulted in his incredible rise in the world of Mass Tort litigation.
One of Ryan’s early victories involved taking on a major credit reporting agency and collecting 28 Million dollars, in a litigation other firms had overlooked. Ryan brings a unique perspective to mass torts. It is a privilege to hear Ryan speak and even more of a privilege to get to know him.
