BLB&G partners Max Berger, Sal Graziano, and Avi Josefson, senior counsel Jai K. Chandrasekhar, and associates Caitlin Bozman and Sarah K. Schmidt have co-authored Chapter 1 of the annually updated “Plaintiffs’ Perspective” in Litigating Securities Class Actions (Jonathan N. Eisenberg, ed., Matthew Bender 2010 & 2024 update), the leading treatise on securities class actions published by LexisNexis. This in-depth treatise gathers the perspectives of leading practitioners to focus on several of the most critical issues that arise in securities class action litigation. BLB&G is the only plaintiffs’ firm to contribute a chapter, with the treatise's other chapters provided by leading defense firms.

This year’s updates cover, among other things, the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decisions in Slack Technologies, LLC v. Pirani, 598 U.S. 759, 770 (2023), which clarifies that shares must be traceable to the defective registration statement for purposes of Section 11 liability, and Macquarie Infrastructure Corp. v. Moab Partners, 601 U.S. 257 (2024), which provides further guidance as to when omissions are actionable under the federal securities laws.
