Last year, we spotlighted the Daimler AG opt-in recovery opportunity for investors brought forward by two groups of organizers – DRRT/TILP and Rotter – click here for the case spotlight.

On December 30, 2019, lawyers from TILP, representing more than 200 institutional investors that held Daimler stock from July 10, 2012 to July 20, 2018, filed in regional court in Stuttgart, Germany.
