Record number of global opt-in actions filed in 2016; nearly a 56% increase year-over-year

Global opt-in litigation and settlements have not only increased in terms of cases and active jurisdictions, but also in complexity and the degree of information necessary to make an informed participation decision.

FRT recently published 2016 Year in Review – Global Opt-In Litigation & Settlements, which discusses several trends from last year affecting securities litigation outside of the U.S., including:

  • growing number of cases and jurisdictions
  • increasing sophistication of global jurisdictions
  • emerging and evolving role of Dutch Foundations
  • increasing need for more detailed analysis to navigate a complex global landscape
