The U.S. Supreme Court's 2014 decision in Daimler v. Bauman represents a sea-change in corporate personal jurisdiction. "General" personal jurisdiction is no longer anywhere a corporation conducts "continuous and substantial" business, but only where it is "at home" - essentially place of incorporation and principal place of business.  Plaintiffs' lawyers are revising their strategies, looking for ways around Bauman that keep cases in their favorite forums, such as "consent" and "pendent jurisdiction." To take full advantage of Bauman, defendants have to keep up. This webinar will examine recent personal jurisdiction rulings and discuss what corporations can learn from them.
