Attorney Calabrese quoted in Law360 article
Phil Calabrese, co-chair of Porter Wright's Class Action Practice Group, was recently interviewed for and quoted in the article, "Fee Disputes Cause Hiccup In NFL Concussion Settlement," published April 13, 2017, at Law360.com.
From Law360.com, Zachary Zagger reporting:
“It gets very complicated very quickly, and can be very difficult for the lawyers to explain and for the judge, so it is not surprising that there is a lot of dispute about fees,” said J. Philip Calabrese, a product liability and class action defense litigator with Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP. “Some of the dispute may be due to misunderstanding, some may be due to objections and concerns over the amount of attorneys' fees being paid as opposed to the amount to the settlement class, and some of it may just be gamesmanship by the lawyers.”
