Securities and Shareholder Litigation: What Lies Ahead in 2020
Recording Available: Thursday, July 30, 2020
Securities and shareholders' litigation is already building an eventful year ahead. The past year has shown a higher record of new federal securities fraud class actions filed and this trend is continuing up until now. The nearly doubled number of filed cases may have been due to the decisions made by the Delaware Court of Chancery that critically limits the ability of stockholders to resolve breach of fiduciary duty claims against directors in the M&A context.
With the current legal landscape, companies should keep themselves in the know of the recent trends and court ruling developments to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.
