Gibbs Law Group Partner Andre Mura to Co-Host Bridgeport CLRA Webinar

March 21, 2016

Gibbs Law Group partner Andre Mura will co-host a Bridgeport Continuing Legal Education webinar this week exploring the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA), one of California’s most powerful consumer statutes.

With Rachel Kraus of Sidley Austin, Mr. Mura will explore the purpose of the CLRA, strategies and pitfalls for bringing claims under the statute, and the role of the CLRA in class action litigation and arbitration. Both attorneys will also touch on the ways in which the CLRA differs from California’s Unfair Competition Law (UCL) protecting consumers from corporate fraud.

Following a general discussion of the CLRA, Mr. Mura and Ms. Kraus will draw on experience as they examine plaintiff and defense perspectives for the litigation of these claims.

The March 23 webinar has been approved for 1.5 hours of MCLE credit. Register now.
