Shareholder lawsuits are not only complicated to litigate, but due to the high financial stakes, these actions can be among the most threatening to a company and its directors and officers.  It has been over twenty years since Congress enacted the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and since that time, private actions under the federal securities laws have continued to be filed at a steady pace.  Over the last decade, the U.S. Supreme Court and the State Supreme Courts have issued multiple decisions impacting the way shareholder actions are litigated and decided.  This One-Hour Briefing will highlight recent developments and trends in this constantly evolving and complex area of the law. 

Expert faculty will discuss:

  • Shareholders actions filing and settlement trends
  • Shareholder actions arising out of the #MeToo movement and claims of sexual harassment by senior executives
  • Potential implications of future Supreme Court decisions in securities cases

The speakers are Jennifer L. Conn, Gabrielle Levin and Marshall R. King, partners at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP and co-authors of PLI’s Securities Litigation: A Practitioner’s Guide, Second Edition.  Participants in this One-Hour Briefing are entitled to a 35% discount off the cover price of this book.
