Avoiding the Crosshairs: M&S Partner Helen Mac Murray to Lead Consumer Protection Panel with Illinois AG

How can businesses in highly regulated industries help to avoid becoming a target of regulatory enforcement action and class action lawsuits?

With a panel featuring Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, “Avoiding the Crosshairs of Consumer Protection Regulators and Class Action Lawsuits” will also leverage the experience and insights of leading consumer protection attorneys and in-house counsel.
