MDL and Its Impact on Your Company

While multidistrict litigation (MDL) can efficiently handle multiple filings, it can also potentially trigger new ones. To help companies understand this important case management tool and how to master it, Kaye Scholer has prepared MDL and Its Impact on Your Company.
