FAQs

What is a securities fraud class action?

A securities fraud class action is a lawsuit filed by investors who bought or sold a company’s securities within a specific period of time (known as a “class period”) and suffered economic injury as a result of violations of the securities laws. In cases involving misleading statements or omissions, a class period generally starts when a company makes an untrue statement of material fact about the company or fails to disclose a material fact necessary to render other statements not misleading. The class period generally ends when the truth is fully disclosed to the investing public. Click here to learn more.

What is the difference between a securities fraud class action and a shareholder derivative action?

In a securities fraud class action, the representative shareholder plaintiff pursues claims on behalf of themselves and a class or classes of similarly situated shareholders to obtain monetary and other benefits directly for the members of the class. In a shareholder derivative action, the representative shareholder plaintiff pursues claims on behalf of a corporation, and benefits indirectly as a shareholder from any corporate governance reforms or monetary recovery obtained for the corporation.

What are my responsibilities as lead plaintiff in a securities fraud class action?

A lead plaintiff is a shareholder or group of shareholders who volunteer to represent other similarly situated shareholders of the corporation and agree to act in the best interests of the class.
