Don Frederico and Melanie Conroy Participants in American Bar Association Class Actions Virtual 2020 National Institute

Pierce Atwood litigation and class action partner Donald R. Frederico will moderate the panel, “Serving a Successful Class Action Mediation,” where Don and the attorney panelists will conduct a mock class action mediation and then discuss the keys to success. 

Pierce Atwood litigation counsel Melanie Conroy, who has been the point person for maintaining the firm’s COVID-19 class action litigation tracker, will participate in the panel discussion, “COVID Cases – Who’s Phishing, Who’s Legit?” The panel will discuss whether class actions exist for students who paid full tuition but did not attend a class, businesses that purchased commercial-interruption insurance that failed to address a pandemic, and more. 

In this year’s virtual program, participants will learn the latest practical developments in class action law, including trial techniques and best practices to sharpen their skills, from top professors, in-house counsel, and lawyers.
