    Speaking Engagements
  • June 28, 2023

Scott Bayzle, Steve Carey, and Corri Hopkins of Parker Poe, along with Valyce Woolaston of Dominion Energy, presented to the Research Triangle Area Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel. They discussed some of the key information in-house counsel need to know — and know fast — before they are served with a class action complaint. The panel covered:

  • The Facts: Class actions are on the rise and continue to grow.
  • The Basics: What is a class action (and why is it a big deal)?
  • The Forum: Why the right forum or venue may be critical.
  • The First 30 Days: What do you need to know and what do you need to do?
  • The Tricks of the Trade: Strategies to use and pitfalls to avoid. 

The Research Triangle Area Chapter of the ACC provides a range of educational programs for in-house lawyers in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and surrounding areas in North Carolina.
