Tubach to Speak at 21st Annual Golden State Institute

October 27, 2011

O'Melveny partner Michael Tubach (SF) will be speaking at the California State Bar Association’s 21st Annual Golden State Antitrust & Unfair Competition Law Institute, to be held on October 27 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

Tubach will moderate a panel entitled " Trial Complexities in Antitrust Cases following Clayworth: Competing Views of Different Plaintiffs’ Groups and Defendants," which will discuss strategic and procedural complexities and opportunities when antitrust claims brought by a class of direct purchasers, a class of indirect purchasers, direct action plaintiffs (i.e., opt outs) and/or the State Attorneys General are on the brink of trial, and the parties and the court are wrestling with how to structure a joint trial or a series of trials.

In addition to moderating the panel, Michael will be one of the leading defense lawyers presenting a defense lawyers' perspective on these issues. Leading class action plaintiffs' lawyers will counter with their views.

The yearly event is co-sponsored by the leading antitrust litigation firms in California, including O'Melveny.
