BLB&G Hosts "Using Shareholder Litigation to Recover Losses and Improve Governance" Seminar in Stockholm
April 19, 2018
BLB&G hosted senior legal personnel from European institutional investors for a one-day educational seminar about shareholder litigation.
Using case studies and practical examples, the program provided greater insight into the uses of shareholder litigation for maximizing the recovery of losses due to securities fraud and misrepresentations in prospectuses, improving governance at portfolio companies, and holding misbehaving senior management and boards of directors accountable to their shareholders.
- The fundamentals of securities class actions, including in-depth discussions of the substantive and procedural laws, analysis of potential matters, the steps in litigation, and the nuts and bolts of mediation and settlement.
- New developments in the law, including the applicable deadlines following CalPERS v. ANZ.
- The fundamentals of direct “opt-out” actions.
- A panel with senior legal personnel from institutional investors discussing their experiences with securities litigation.
- The fundamentals of fiduciary duty litigation, including in-depth discussions of fiduciary duty law, derivative actions, governance in the age of shareholder activism, and M&A related litigation.
- Recent developments of shareholder litigation in Europe.
Participants obtained substantive knowledge to assist them in making critical decisions affecting their funds and an opportunity to expand their network of sophisticated peers at other funds.
