Securities Claims: A Trans-national Perspective

Event Details

Time: 16:00-19:00 (Registration from 15:15)

Venue: British Institute of International and Comparative Law, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5JP

As part of the Institute's Collective Redress programme, this highly anticipated seminar focusses on securities litigation from a comparative perspective, bringing together leading academics and counsel involved in recent high-profile cases, and analysing the global phenomenon of damages claims arising from breaches of securities legislation.

This is currently a hot topic as such litigation is being brought in a number of high-profile cases. Examples include: a claim against RBS by institutional investors including the RBS Shareholder Action Group, and a similar case against Volkswagen due to investor losses stemming from the recent emissions scandal.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
