Unbiased analysis into Global Shareholder Litigations

How are you navigating the complex global securities litigation landscape? How are you weighing risks and opportunities in each jurisdiction?

In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Morrison V. National Australia Bank that international claims must now be filed in the court system in their country of origin. That decision has significantly complicated the landscape of international claims recovery and will likely increase the number of group actions in jurisdictions that utilize a variety of legal mechanisms other than the traditional class action litigation.

FRT Global Group Litigation is designed to meet the growing demand for research and analysis on non-US settlement recovery opportunities by providing analysis and facilitation of potential recoveries from non-class action settlements for institutional investors.
