The global securities litigation landscape outside the U.S. continues to rapidly grow and evolve. We’re seeing increased activity in established jurisdictions like Germany, Netherlands, and the UK, as well as in new countries like Denmark and South Africa.
These changing dynamics are complicating the participation analysis. With nearly 50 cases filed or book-building during 2018, investors must now consider many more factors when deciding whether to get active and which recovery efforts to join.
Attend our webinar as Mike Lange, Securities Litigation Counsel at FRT, shares insights into:
Spotlight on Europe - similarities and differences among countries and implications for your involvement
Issuer-centric recovery efforts - why your recovery program should be fraud-centric rather than organizer specific
Jurisdiction profiles and loss thresholds - grouping jurisdictions by high, medium, and low risk levels
Corporate governance and non-litigation efforts
Best practices will be illustrated using current cases including Danske, Petrobras, Tesco, and Volkswagen

Over the past 10 years, global group litigation matters have not only increased in terms of cases and active jurisdictions, but have also evolved in terms of complexity and the degree of information necessary to make an informed participation decision. Learn how the global landscape is adapting to increased interest in global resolutions and what you can do to navigate the complex jurisdictional and filing requirements
Most consider the UK the riskiest and most burdensome non-US jurisdiction for prosecuting securities claims. With the Morrison v. National Australia Bank decision limiting what may be litigated in the U.S., the UK along with other countries are finding a need to refine and update their class action processes.
