Product Description


"As technology effectively shrinks both the physical and legal worlds, lawyers must increasingly view disputes from a global perspective. In World Class Actions, Paul Karlsgodt and his expert contributors provide a fine overview of class action litigation around the world. This book identifies a gap in the literature and fills it nicely."
--Mark Herrmann
Vice President and Chief Counsel - Litigation, Aon
Author, The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law

"Industrialization, globalization and the explosive evolution of mass and social media has changed the business world into a global village. With this comes the risk of global harm and global litigation. World Class Actions offers lawyers and their clients an effective, reliable road map through the complicated and constantly changing terrain of global class-action litigation."
--Prof. Dr. Ianika N. Tzankova
Professor of Comparative Mass Litigation, Tilburg University
Attorney-at-law, NautaDutilh N.V.

"World Class Actions is a comprehensive and practical look at everything a class-action litigator needs to know about mass litigation in other countries. In an increasingly globalized world, this is a book no international lawyer should be without."
--Andrew J. Trask, McGuireWoods London LLP, co-author of The Class Action Playbook

"Provides a helpful introduction to the incredibly complex and varied topic of collective actions around the world. It will serve as a valuable resource for lawyers and other professionals as they attempt to navigate and develop strategies for litigation and risk management while doing business abroad. This book will be particularly valuable for those whose jobs require them to understand and manage the litigation risks their clients must attempt to manage in their operations around the world. I highly recommend this book."
--Kevin M. LaCroix, The D&O Diary

"For practitioners whose clients have business interests overseas, this book could prove invaluable in helping navigate the shoals of unfamiliar legal systems."
--D. Matt Allen, Classified: Carlton Fields' Class Action Blog
