Don Frederico on Faculty at ABA’s 22nd Annual National Institute on Class Actions

Pierce Atwood litigation partner Donald R. Frederico, leader of the firm’s class action defense practice, will moderate a discussion titled, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. v. Superior Court of California: Is it a Bear or a Cub?

The Supreme Court decision in Bristol-Myers Squibb has forced federal courts to tackle personal jurisdiction in class actions in a whole new way, even though the case was neither a class action nor was it filed in federal court. The faculty and session attendees will discuss questions such as:

  • How far does this case reach and what are its practical implications?
  • Does it help defendants or simply create extra work and uncertainty for them?
