Course Description

Time 60 minutes
Difficulty Advanced

Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) litigation is a unique animal that differs in significant ways from traditional commercial or civil rights disputes. 

 

Experienced ADA litigator Nolan Klein, Esq. provides an overview of strategies for handling and resolving ADA litigation. This includes discussion of the history and purpose of the ADA law, explanation of the various types of ADA plaintiffs, substantive and procedural tools that can be used to counter compulsive ADA litigators, and the most effective ways of handling and resolving ADA cases for corporate and individual clients.  

 

Learning Objectives:

I.    Grasp the history and purpose of the ADA, including how and why so many lawsuits have come to be filed by a small handful of ADA plaintiffs

II.   Identify realistic and achievable goals when defending clients in ADA lawsuits, and learn how to avoid common pitfalls

III.  Comprehend the most effective tactics to use in resolving ADA lawsuits inexpensively, while creating accessibility and avoiding future ADA lawsuits
