Wajert Talks to Legal Intelligencer About Mass Tort Plaintiffs' Counsel

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Philadelphia Managing Partner Sean Wajert spoke with The Legal Intelligencer about plaintiffs firms in mass tort cases, pointing out that their criteria for accepting a case varies widely. "If it's done carefully and appropriately, it can involve huge upfront costs, which is why there is an incentive and temptation to not cross all the t's and dot all the i's on the intake process," Wajert said. He further noted that the firms have an additional incentive to take on more cases because the firms with the most cases receive the most proceeds after a settlement.
