Capital Markets and Corporate Law
The Litigation Center has filed numerous briefs supporting limitations on securities litigation.
The Litigation Center, working closely in coordination with the Chamber’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness, continues to file regularly in key cases affecting the regulation of capital markets and financial institutions.
In the Supreme Court, we have addressed a wide range of issues, including whether the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act’s discovery stay applies in state courts and whether the “risk factors” disclosed in a securities filing must disclose only future risks or must also disclose whether a risk has come to fruition in the past.
We also have filed several briefs urging state appellate courts to hold that “federal forum provisions” are valid and enforceable; and have filed briefs in support of favorable financial regulations, such as the SEC’s reform of the shareholder proposal process.
