Our Eighth Annual!
HB is proud to be working once again with Judge Corodemus, a highly regarded and intelligent leader who dedicates herself to bringing complex claims to resolution and, in this case, educating practitioners not only with her insights, but with those shared by many of the finest litigators, trial attorneys, experts and neutrals in the field today.

Why We Do This
Because mass tort practitioners have a genuine need for sophisticated updates and insights from true leaders from both sides of the bar and from the bench. They tell us they like the “reality-based back and forth” between plaintiffs and defendants, the serious involvement of the judges, and the ability to interact with the faculty and other members of the audience. One told us that if she could only attend one mass tort event, it would be this one. A long-time hallmark of this event is the significant representation of leading women practitioners, neutrals and judges.

 What they are saying about the Forum

“Accessibility to Great Minds”

“Mass Torts Judicial Forum with Hon. Marina Corodemus presented by HB Litigation Conferences is a ‘go-to’ for lawyers seeking to learn current practical tips and about updates in the law from top advocates and neutrals in the ever evolving mass torts space. Each year, the smart, witty, ‘tell-it-how-it-is’ Judge Corodemus partners up with [HB’s] Tom Hagy and his team to offer a deep dive into the law with a complex hypothetical to anchor the full-day discussion. The conference is bookmarked on many top lawyers’ calendars.”

“It’s not often we have the honor of working with someone for 25 years.   The first time I met Judge Corodemus  I was standing before her in her courtroom, a nervous third-year law student arguing a motion.  I recall the presence she had and how much I wanted to make an impression upon her and win for my client.  Well, I didn’t win the motion, but imagine my joy at her asking me  to speak at her conference 25 years later.  I have attended this program several times in the past and am always impressed with the content, the presentation and the speakers.  To have been included with this superior echelon of  nationwide leaders – a majority of whom were women – was a tremendous honor.  Judge Corodemus is truly a mainstay in the field who continues to give back to the practice.”

“I have been honored to attend and speak at Judge Corodemus’ mass tort conferences for several years now.  The depth and breadth of the discussions involving plaintiff and defense counsel as well as judges is unparalleled.”

“I look forward to attending Judge Corodemus’ Mass Tort conference every year – it is an opportunity for lawyers from ‘both sides of the v’ to come together, build better relationships and interact with judges. Last year I was particularly impressed with how many strong women were featured on the panels – it was very inspiring!”

“Lien Resolution Group was honored to sponsor the Mass Torts Judicial Forum with Judge Corodemus hosted by HB Litigation.  The Judicial Forum was truly a wonderful event where some of the biggest and brightest mass tort lawyers, judges and influencers came together to discuss issues ranging from settlement to personal jurisdiction and other mass tort related hot topics.  The high caliber of speakers, accessibility to these great minds, and detailed subject matters discussed in such an intimate setting was great.  A big thank you to the speakers and conference organizers for arranging such a terrific forum.”
