Though securities claims have historically been relatively uncommon in England and Wales, in recent years there have been a number of high-profile claims brought in the English courts – including some which are still in progress – and we expect this upward trend to continue. Recent cases have included claims brought under Section 90 and Section 90A of FSMA, which provide investors in a public company with a cause of action where misleading or false statements are made. We are likely to see more claims along these lines in the future, including the potential for activist investors to bring claims seeking to put pressure on companies relating to their disclosure of ESG issues. Issues around disclosures and making misleading statements often also lead to regulatory scrutiny and enforcement action, as well as exposing companies to reputational risk and we anticipate these risks will only increase in the next few years.
Presented by our equity capital markets, litigation and contentious regulatory experts, this session will discuss:
- The current and likely future landscape for these types of claim; and
- How best to manage the associated regulatory enforcement and litigation risks
