Lead poisoning has resurfaced in the news in recent months and continues to be a source of intense litigation. Parties on all sides need to stay in the loop. HB has been holding informative and influential conferences on this topic since 1992, when we were still Mealey’s Conferences.

If your practice or enterprise touches on this critical issue in any way, you’ll want to be at

The National Lead Litigation Conference in Naples, Florida on Nov. 3-4, 2016.


This year features:

Anatomy of a Lead Case From Start to Finish

Discovery | Summary Judgment Hearing | ADR | In Limine Hearing | Jury Selection | Closing Arguments

Carefully selected legal and scientific experts won’t just talk the talk. You’ll see them in action. Experience mock hearings presided over by seasoned lead litigation judges and deliberated by the juror-attendees using an engaging and content-rich fact pattern.

Interwoven among the sessions will be insights on:

The latest science on lead poisoning
Lead in water — beyond Flint
Long-term physical, economic and non-economic damages
Government immunity
Trial strategies
Evidence of causation and admissibility
Medical monitoring
Potential constitutional claims
Other exposure threats to children

And much more!

Plaintiff and defense attorneys, government and agency representatives and counsel will benefit from this program. There is always something new to learn or a valuable connection to make.
