Liability analysis in the context of securities lawsuits and related regulatory investigations and proceedings is obviously important. Equally important, however, but often overlooked (or not focused upon early enough) are issues relating to damages, particularly in non-traditional contexts. Trial lawyers must be aware of and question the key assumptions underlying any economic model used by the testifying expert to calculate such damages. Many questions confront today's securities litigators, including:

  • What can a defendant do to seek to break the causal link between challenged conduct and losses incurred?
  • What novel damages theories are the courts permitting?
  • What are the best practices for implementing and defending against damage estimation methodology?
  • What impact can an SEC settlement have on the assessment of damages in related civil litigation?

This seminar will provide you with some tools needed to answer these and other key questions.
