A recent study by PricewaterhouseCoopers shows that after a significant surge in federal securities class actions last year, U.S. companies can expect an even greater increase in the future as the global financial crisis unfolds.

PLI’s Securities Litigation: A Practitioner‘s Guide can help companies cope effectively with this major challenge, by providing you with the guidance you need to help your clients get the competitive edge in securities class actions. This timely reference helps you master relevant federal procedural rules for securities class actions; effective defenses against such actions; appellate standards of review; and the steps involved in achieving favorable settlements.

Securities Litigation also makes sure you’re ready to go trial if it’s necessary, by showing you how to develop persuasive trial themes; strengthen your trial presentation; use facts and arguments that resonate with jurors; maximize the impact of expert witnesses; get valuable deposition testimony admitted at trial; and strengthen other litigation skills.

Updated at least once a year, Securities Litigation: A Practitioner’s Guide is an invaluable road map to success for securities practitioners, and vital reading for executives and managers in securities firms, compliance officers, general practitioners engaged in securities litigation, investors, and federal and state regulators.
