In AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, the United States Supreme Court recently found that a rule adopted by a California Supreme Court decision precluding waivers of consumer class actions in arbitrations conducted pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act as a matter of state law was preempted by federal law. The decision is likely to have a significant impact on class action litigation.

In this Web conference, Foley Partners John Birmingham, John Douglas, and Michael Leffel explored the Concepcion decision in detail and explained its potential significance for employers who include mandatory arbitration clauses in their agreements. There also was a discussion of issues that may still arise when attempting to enforce arbitration agreements in a post-Concepcion world.
