BakerHostetler Partners Mark Kornfeld and Deborah Renner co-authored the chapter “Trends and Recent Developments in Securities Class Actions and Regulatory Enforcement Proceedings” for the 2016 edition of Aspatore’s Inside the Minds series on “New Developments in Securities Litigation: Leading Lawyers on Adapting to Trends in Securities Litigation and Regulatory Enforcement.” They write:
As a continued reaction to the challenging economic realities of the past several years, the securities laws and regulatory landscape have been rapidly changing. The US Supreme Court has decided significant issues in the class action and other contexts, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has intensified its scrutiny of corporate behavior, leading to more cases and a clarification of the SEC’s role in both enforcement and regulation.
Associates Dave McMillan, Jonathan Forman and Jonathan Blattmachr provided assistance in preparing the chapter.
