    Event Synopsis:
    The number of securities class-action lawsuits involving materiality and price impact rules has remained high in recent years. With the Halliburton II decision in the backdrop, allowing defendants to rebut fraud-on-the-market presumption at the class certification stage, courts have struggled in providing clear guidance on assessing rebuttal evidence. Thus, creating a more complex litigation environment.

    With the ever-evolving securities class action landscape, trends and developments surrounding this area of law are expected to continue to emerge. As anticipated, the need to understand and to remain updated with the trends and recent court rulings remains vital to avoid potential risks and legal pitfalls in this increasingly complex securities class action landscape.

    Join a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group as they provide an in-depth discussion of the evolving landscape of securities class action. They will discuss notable cases and court rulings involving Halliburton II, materiality, the price impact rule and other recent topics. Speakers will also address risk issues and offer best practices to successfully bring or defend against this type of lawsuits.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    • Securities Class Action Litigation: A 2019 Update
    • Recent Court Rulings
    • Litigation Challenges
    • Practical Tips and Strategies to Avoid Pitfalls
    • What Lies Ahead
