Securities Class Action Litigation in the 2020 Landscape: What You Should Know and Do
Recording Available: Wednesday, May 06, 2020
A new era of securities class action litigation comes into view as companies face challenges brought by a recent trend called “event-driven” lawsuit. This type of lawsuit results from corporate mismanagement following a negative event in connection with the company’s operations. Instead of common claims like financial misstatements or omissions, an “event-driven” litigation is one where negative events lead to the filing of the securities class action case.
The rise of “event-driven” claims, in addition to other significant developments in the landscape, requires companies and their counsel to be aware and be in the know of effective defense strategies to better protect their businesses.
In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of recent developments in securities class action litigation including “event-driven” claims. Speakers will also present the important issues surrounding this significant topic as well as practical tips and strategies to minimize risks and pitfalls.
