The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (PSLRA) and the Securities Litigation Standards Act of 1998 (SLUSA), were intended to (1) create a more stabilized system for securities litigation and (2) make sure that the "right" cases, those with the "most legal merit", made it to court. However, the reform laws are both complicated and, at times, ambiguous.
In Securities Litigation Under the PSLRA (formerly Securities Litigation After the Reform Act), Professor Michael A. Perino, a leading securities litigation expert, takes an in-depth look at this new legal territory. He examines the PSLRA from various aspects, discussing what the law says, the legislative history behind it, and the way it has been approached and applied by attorneys and courts in cases since its adoption. For any attorney in the process of launching, or defending, a securities action, this book is an invaluable resource for mapping strategy. Subscribe today to:
