Global Securities Litigation Made Simple

Global Securities Fraud Litigation Made Simple

This latest guide sponsored by Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP introduces the topic of global securities litigation. The cost of financial misconduct can be significant to pension funds, and it’s important that schemes understand what securities litigation is and how claims can be pursued, so that should schemes find themselves the victims of securities fraud they are in a position to make informed decisions on behalf of their members.

This guide briefly explores the class action opportunities available in the US as well as the mechanisms available in other markets, in particular the UK, Canada (Ontario in particular), Germany, Japan and Australia. The Netherlands is also referenced because although it lacks a mechanism for the resolution of disputed claims by classes of investors, the Dutch system offers a venue in which cooperating parties can forge European Union-wide binding resolutions of outcomes that have been agreed to by the parties.


PLSA talks to Mark Solomon of Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd about "Global Securities Fraud Litigation Made Simple", at our Investment Conference 2018.
