In the past year and a half the United States has seen changes in the way regulations are enforced and regulators have been treated. As a nation built on the rule of law and dedicated to the integrity of its systems it has faced and will face challenges not only in the area of securities but across the spectrum of areas of regulation. The keynote address will speak to challenges both specific to securities litigation and more generally.
Our panels of prominent and respected experts will describe how the current environment affects regulation and law enforcement. There have been numerous, significant developments in securities, merger and acquisition, corporate governance and crypto-currency in connection with litigation, enforcement and related regulation. While most lawsuits arising from the credit crisis are in the rear view mirror, a new wave of traditional securities class actions has replaced them. The courts in which cases are being been filed has shifted a great deal due to court decisions. The types of M&A cases that are being filed has also changed significantly. At the same time, financial institutions are still being confronted with a number of investigations and enforcement actions conducted by a variety of regulators. Audit firms are facing and participating in investigations. Finally, the courts continue to issue decisions that substantially affect the strategies to be employed in prosecuting and defending securities and derivative litigation. As these lawsuits, investigations and enforcement actions continue, it is critical that securities litigators and enforcement lawyers keep up with the latest developments.
This full-day program will provide a comprehensive overview of recent trends, developments and cutting-edge issues in securities litigation, regulation and enforcement. The panels will include prominent securities litigators, senior in-house counsel at major financial institutions and corporations, nationally recognized trial lawyers, jury consultants, and economists.
