Dec. 12, 2022
ON

OBA Class Actions PROGRAM | 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

Distribution issues can be vexing for class counsel. Following amendments to the Class Proceedings Act, the Court may now hold back a portion of class counsel’s fees and disbursements until it is satisfied with the distribution of the monetary award or the settlement funds. Join our expert faculty as they examine case studies on distribution and discuss practical strategies to address common distribution challenges, including such issues as:

  • How to increase claims rates, particularly in the context of cases involving large classes and small individual damage awards
  • How to make notice more effective
  • Using state of the art digital marketing techniques
  • Incentivizing cross-counsel oversight
  • Ethical obligations and reputational interests
  • Managing costs of distribution
  • Transparency and monitoring of distribution
