Securities Fraud Litigation Against Life Sciences Companies – Recent Trends [01:02:55]

The life sciences industry continues to be a key target for securities fraud litigation and there is no indication that this trend will reverse any time soon.  As a result, life sciences companies must have a firm grasp on the recent developments in this area of the law, including the nature of the claims being brought, how courts throughout the country are reacting to various types of claims, and best practices firms can employ to avoid securities fraud litigation.  This analysis is particularly helpful with an overall backdrop of the current state of securities fraud litigation both domestically and globally.

  • The globalization of securities fraud litigation and how that relates to and impacts domestic claims
  • Trends in the types of securities fraud cases being filed and how they relate to the life cycle of the approval process
  • Courts’ reaction to the increased filings and analysis regarding which types of claims are more likely to survive a motion to dismiss
