Federal Litigation and Securities Regulation AFTER MORRISON: Current Developments & Transnational Strategies

Federal Litigation and Securities Regulation AFTER MORRISON: Current Developments & Transnational Strategies

The globalization of financial markets ushered in an era of transnational securities litigation in the United States. Although the Supreme Court's April 27, 2010 decision in Morrison v. National Australia Bank Ltd. provided an answer to the longstanding issue of whether Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 applies extraterritorially, there are still significant open questions. Given the growing importance and increasing decentralization of off-exchange trading, and the use of internet trading technology and accounts, how courts will determine whether a particular purchase or sale of a security occurred "in the United States" is uncertain.

While Morrison has dramatically changed the litigation landscape in federal courts, however, it may not be the final word on investors' ability to recover losses resulting from transnational corporate wrongdoing. U.S. regulators have undertaken new enforcement and regulatory initiatives. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act passed by Congress includes a provision granting federal courts jurisdiction over actions by the Securities Exchange Commission and Department of Justice alleging violations of the federal securities laws in certain circumstances. Additionally, an increasing number of non-U.S. jurisdictions have enacted recovery procedures and legislation specifically geared toward private securities litigation and class actions.

In this program, an expert faculty of highly experienced and well-known securities litigators and commentators will discuss important developments in securities and other federal litigation following Morrison, and offer strategies and tactics for prosecuting and defending cases involving transnational fraud within the U.S. and beyond. The course will offer counsel an overview of cutting-edge issues in U.S. and international securities litigation, ranging from procedural mechanics to sophisticated strategic advice.
