  • This full-day program will provide a comprehensive overview of recent trends, developments and cutting-edge issues in securities litigation, regulation and enforcement. The panels will include prominent securities litigators, senior in-house counsel at major financial institutions, representatives of the SEC and corporations, and nationally recognized trial lawyers.

    This year our keynote speaker will be Lori W. Will, Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, who has already written groundbreaking opinions such as that in the MultiPlan case, which applied an entire fairness standard.

    Currently, one of the most important and interesting areas of securities related activity is a discussion of what Gary Gensler has accomplished and what is likely to result from the Supreme Court’s grant of certiorari in the Jarkesy case. Brad Karp will speak on recent developments in Supreme Court decisions and their implications.

    The Securities Litigation & Enforcement Institute will feature panels of outstanding speakers who will discuss:

    • What is next for the SEC
    • Traditional securities litigation panel
    • Current Delaware litigation
    • In-house counsel’s biggest concerns and challenges
    • What’s new in cyber security litigation
