Dougherty Invited to Duke Law Class Action Settlement Conference

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Chicago Partner George Dougherty joins the Duke Conference: Bench-Bar-Academy Distinguished Lawyers’ Series, participating in the Duke Law Center for Judicial Studies’ invitation-only Class Action Settlement Conference on October 6-7, 2016, in San Diego, Calif.

The event will examine the proposed amendments to Rule 23. Dougherty will work with other participants to "lay the groundwork for the development of best practices, [and] provid[e] guidance on the precise types and extent of information lawyers should provide courts to meet the new requirements and the standards that judges can  rely on in making their rulings under the amendments.”

In his practice, Dougherty has defended scores of class actions for many companies, involving issues related to mortgage financing, subprime lending, privacy, financial disclosure and consumer-protection issues.
