Current Developments in Shareholder Litigation in California

This whitepaper explores the dominant features in the shareholder litigation environment in California today: fragmentation and uncertainty.

Key highlights include:


  • The rise in securities litigation volume can be tied back to the fragmentation of the plaintiffs’ bar and the proliferation of active smaller firms; ‘too small to sue’ no longer applies

  • Uncertainty can be tied to the following areas:
    • Whether IPO lawsuits can be brought in state court or only Federal
    • Evolution of merger and fiduciary duty suits
    • Strength of the Safe Harbor for forward-looking statements
    • Evolving risk profile for private companies, which historically were less concerned about shareholder lawsuits
