Since the passage of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, only 10 federal securities fraud class actions of the thousands that have been filed in the United States have ever reached trial. This trend is changing. Facing enormous damages claims in the wake of the recent financial crisis, corporate defendants have grown less willing to negotiate early settlements, paving the way for an increased number of trials in these complex cases.

Please join us for an in-depth webinar that will analyze issues involved in taking a securities class action to trial, including the public relations pressures on executives and witnesses, discovery issues, trial strategies, and more.
