Directors & officers liability claim trends

This article discusses additional trends including:

  • Secondary offering cases are increasingly being litigated in state courts.
  • SEC enforcement actions against public companies and subsidiaries jumped in the first half of 2019.
  • SEC enforcement continues to focus on individuals and increased penalties, but disgorgement relief dropped dramatically.
