The Economics of Securities and Financial Litigation

Capabilities and Services

Sweeping regulatory changes, aggressive enforcement tactics, and the ongoing fallout from the credit crisis have raised the stakes in securities and finance matters around the world. Financial industry reform law in the US and elsewhere will have far-reaching implications for how companies are supervised and regulated, though the full impact of these changes will be unclear for some time. Other recent regulatory changes in Europe, Asia, and Australia have led to increases in class action litigation across the globe. Meanwhile, the financial markets continue to evolve and those tasked with enforcing them endeavor to keep pace, as the stakes remain high in this complex and turbulent economic environment.
