Securities Litigation Monitoring

In the increasingly complicated global class action landscape, monitoring and tracking litigation in the U.S. and internationally can be challenging

More and more, firms like pension and sovereign wealth funds desire to gain a deeper understanding of their losses in a particular security, opportunities to become a lead plaintiff in a group action, their options for opting out of a class action and pursuing private litigation, and ultimately analyze filing opportunities if no other actions are taken.

FRT’s Litigation Monitoring service is designed to be efficiently utilized by funds to provide comprehensive information in order to help them meet their fiduciary responsibilities and to make informed decisions about how to pursue securities litigation.
