The Evolving Securities Litigation Landscape: Recent Trends and Updates You Need to Know
The securities litigation landscape is constantly evolving as new judicial developments continue to emerge. While merger objection cases have sharply reduced in number in 2019, the volume of securities class action filings has generally increased, showing a shift towards Section 12, Rule 10b-5, and Section 11 cases. The point is that the upward trend of securities class actions is not expected to fall this coming year.
