July 21-22, 2018

This event will be unlike ANY other opioid conference ever presented. There are commitments from major broadcast and print media from across the across the country to cover this event, because never before has such a comprehensive group of experts been assembled to explain how the Opioid Crisis began, the affect on our country and to provide viable solutions. Leading elected officials, treating physicians, opioid crisis experts, addiction treatment professionals, academics and attorneys involved in the opioid litigation will come together to tell the story of what happened based on their real time day to day experiences in dealing with this crisis over the last two decades.

WHY DO YOU NEED TO ATTEND THIS EVENT?

Contrary to popular belief, it is not too late to acquire entity cases (state, county, city, union, private insurers, etc.) There are an estimated 10,000 entity cases and less than 1% have been signed. Mass Tort Nexus has the data for every county in the country, along with an index score to arm you with the information to write accurate complaints and customize them in great detail.

The universe of individual cases will potentially be in excess of one million plaintiffs. Over 90 million Americans were prescribed opioids in the last year alone and there is not one segment of society that has not been affected. The only litigation that compares to it in size and scope is the tobacco litigation; however, there is one big difference – the opioid litigation is likely to resolve far more quickly. We will reveal the reasons why.

SEATS ARE VERY LIMITED. REGISTER NOW.

Agenda of Events

The U.S. is in the grip of an unprecedented opioid epidemic and has been for over a decade. Legal claims filed on behalf of major cities, counties, and other entities charge that major drug companies fueled the deadly crisis. Mass Tort Nexus, one of the nation’s leading information resources for law firms, has gathered an unprecedented group of elected officials, political and medical experts, and academic leaders from around the country, to examine the crisis and offer insight.
 
As this nation’s opioid epidemic continues to take lives and cost American cities billions of dollars, communities across the nation are now holding large pharmaceutical drug makers accountable by taking them to court. Recently, New York City joined Chicago, Seattle, Milwaukee, and other major cities in filing legal action against Big Pharma. They charge that opioid manufacturers knew of the highly addictive nature of these drugs and directly fueled the epidemic, by focusing on profits over patient safety.
 
On July 21-22, 2018, the law firm consulting company Mass Tort Nexus will convene a symposium to present a firsthand account as to the depth and severity of the crisis. The research team at Mass Tort Nexus has brought together some very influential speakers. The list includes the Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, Mary Taylor; State Attorney for Palm Beach County Florida, Dave Aronberg, Esq.; Director of Public Health, State of West Virginia, Rahul Gupta, MD; Executive Director, Novus Medical Detox Centers, Kent Runyon; The Amy Winehouse Project Addiction Recovery Center, Susan Anderson and Blades Williamson; Opioid Crisis Advocate, Stephen Gelfand, MD; Partner at Watts Guerra, LLP, Shelly Sanford, Esq.; Partner at Parker Waichman, LLP, Raymond Silverman, Esq. and Lead Consultant and Opioid Crisis Expert, John Ray.  These speakers are coming together to give our attendees a firsthand look at just how dramatic the impact of the opioid crisis is within our communities.
 
Attorneys in attendance will be given specific information regarding the signing of both entity and individual cases, regarding case criteria, damage models and estimated timeframes for settlement.
