Securities Law and SCOTUS 2020: What the Most Recent Decisions Mean For Your Practice

1h 3m

Created on October 06, 2020





The Supreme Court has always played a major role in shaping the securities law landscape. Recently, the Supreme Court's decisions in cases such as Lorenzo v. Securities Exchange Commission, 139 S. Ct. 1094 (2019) and Liu v. Securities and Exchange Commission, 140 S. Ct. 1936 (2020) have fundamentally changed the practice of securities law on a day-to-day basis. Courts across the country and practitioners on both sides of the aisle are currently grappling with how to interpret, utilize, and apply these important decisions in their day-to-day practice.           

Join Carol C. Villegas and James Christie for a discussion on these issues. Ms. Villegas is a partner and Mr. Christie is an associate at Labaton Sucharow LLP. Ms. Villegas and Mr. Christie represent institutional investors (such as public pension funds and hedge funds) who have suffered financial losses in the stock market as a result of securities fraud committed by publicly traded companies and their officers and executives.
