How To Settle Without “Settling”, From NELA’s 2017 Seminar: Litigating Wage & Hour Cases
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

Our panelists discuss how to secure the best settlement for your clients. They explain how and when to approach settlement with defendants (pre-litigation, pre- or post-notice); strategies for bringing defendants to the negotiating table; what to do to ensure that you are well-prepared for negotiations; what issues, economic and non-economic, should be addressed in negotiations to avoid complications in effectuating the deal; and seeking court approval of the settlement, effective settlement notice programs, and attorneys’ fees and costs issues including the recent trend of denying requests for a percentage of the fund, closely scrutinizing fee rates, and reducing or eliminating fee multipliers.
