Online via WebEx
Blank Rome Partners Roy W. Arnold and Charles S. Marion, Of Counsel Martin S. Krezalek, and Associate Harrison M. Brown will present the live webinar “The Widening Web of Liability: Is Your Company Website—and Mobile App(s)—Compliant with the ADA?” on Thursday, May 16, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. (EDT).
Waves of lawsuits against companies in many consumer-facing industries continue, with new complaints being filed more recently related to the alleged inaccessibility of mobile applications. Lawsuits have targeted many industries, including retailers, luxury goods, hospitality, hotels, banks, and others.
This program and our panel will provide an overview of lawsuits being filed under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and similar state and local statutes against companies operating consumer-facing websites and mobile applications. They will also offer a framework to assess a company’s exposure, and proactive steps to take to mitigate future risk.
