SHB Partner Tim Congrove and Associates David Northrip and Dana Strueby have published an article in the January 11, 2012, issue of DRI’s The Business Suit, the newsletter of the Commercial Litigation Committee, which is chaired by SHB Partner Peter Strand. Titled “Keep Talking, but Know the Law: Ongoing Considerations Regarding Communications with Potential Class Members,” the newsletter feature updates their July 2008 article that addressed the legal and ethical considerations involved when defendants contact potential class members. The authors discuss recent cases to assess how defense counsel should proceed when considering such communications and conclude that while these contacts can provide valuable insights and help shape a defense strategy, counsel must follow certain guidelines and practices to ensure consistency with “what the law permits.” To read the article, please click here.
