This telephonic brown bag program will summarize the significant developments in consumer protection law that occurred during January 2008. The presentation will cover cases, settlements, and other initiatives at the federal and state levels, as well as consumer class actions, Lanham Act litigation, and National Advertising Division case decisions.

This program is a monthly series of brown bags in which individuals can call in and hear consumer protection practitioners report on the previous month's developments. The update portion of the program will last approximately 30-40 minutes and will be followed by Q&A. The powerpoint presentation will be emailed prior to the call so that participants can follow along and view the advertising that is the subject of the panel's discussion.

A different law firm presents the Consumer Protection Update each month. Wiggin and Dana will provide this month's update, with the following panel of presenters:

  • Robert Langer
  • Steven Malech
  • Sujata Gadkar-Wilcox

Christie Grymes from Kelley Drye Collier Shannon will moderate.

Please mark your calendar and join us.
