All the speakers will express a world view on, and help attendees understand, the developments underlying current litigation trends and how things work together, from both a preventative and a strategic point of view" said Young. "Because our firm does litigation in several states, participating in this program gives Hughes Watters Askanase the opportunity to cut across state lines and observe current national, as well as state specific, outlooks on hot consumer litigation issues."

At the 12th Annual Consumer Financial Services Litigation Institute, a panel of plaintiff lawyers, defense counsel, regulators, consumer advocates and law professors discuss the litigation issues facing consumers, the consumer financial services industry and the lawyers whose work affects the industry.
