Our April webinar on Understanding Shareholder Loss Estimates in Non-U.S. Jurisdictions highlights the similarities and differences of estimating losses among countries including the United States, Australia, Japan and other Non-U.S. jurisdictions. We’ve highlighted some of the key quotes from this 30-minute webinar. You can download the full transcript to the webinar here.



U.S. Settled Class Actions and Antitrust Settlements

  • “Whether it’s a securities or an antitrust class action, in the US, your damages considerations are primarily settlement driven. In other words, the models I’ve described are the results of algorithms that are approved by the courts after a settlement has taken place, which makes it more or less set in stone and not really open to dispute, except in rare instances.” -Chris Looby, Director of Operations, Financial Recovery Technologies

Non-US Jurisdictions – Australia and Japan

  • “In both Australia and Japan jurisdictions, a history of court or settlement guidance, as well as some statutory guidance, has led to more standardized processes.” -Emily Fortin, Associate Counsel, Financial Recovery Technologies

Non-US Jurisdictions

  • When the models differ, comparing loss estimates is like comparing apples to oranges. It complicates decision making around case registration, and FRT is spending more and more time helping clients understand variances and the reason for them.-Mike Lange, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Litigation, Financial Recovery Technologies
