Mass Torts Made Perfect – 2018
Burg Simpson’s mass tort team recently attended the Mass Torts Made Perfect bi-annual conference held on Oct 3rd through the 5th in Las Vegas. The conferences are designed for individuals working in the area of plaintiff mass torts and personal injury litigation, as well as securities and toxic torts. The conferences are the largest plaintiff mass torts gatherings in the world, with more than 1,000 participants (from 500 law firms) at each event, covering every form of mass torts topic, from prescription drugs, defective products, investment fraud, consumer fraud and business litigation. It has become the key gathering point for the promotion of mass torts litigation, with virtually every major plaintiff’s law firm and lawyer in the field attending the event.
Mass Torts Made Perfect was founded in 2000, and the event was created with the idea of convening attorneys involved in the practice of mass torts litigation in an effort to share ideas and resources. This year’s speakers from Burg Simpson included Michael S. Burg and Seth Katz.
Past speakers at the conference have included President Bill Clinton, Elie Wiesel, Jack Kemp, Ted Koppel, Bob Woodward, Dan Rather, F. Lee Bailey, Arianna Huffington, Bill Maher, Pete Rose, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Theismann, Joe Namath, Wanda Sykes, Johnnie Cochran, Jason Alexander, George Lopez, Cedric the Entertainer, Lewis Black, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Martin Short, Emmitt Smith, Sarah Silverman, Cornel West, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Blaine, Whoopi Goldberg, Jim Gaffigan, and many more.
