How many times have you thought to yourself “this could make a great class action!” but you never followed through because you just didn’t know whether a consumer or employee class action was feasible or appropriate. This is a beginner’s webinar focusing on how to identify consumer or employee complaints that can be turned into great class actions – or when you should reject any notion of filing a class action.
