ANNUAL INSTITUTE FOR INVESTOR PROTECTION CONFERENCE
Loyola University Chicago School of Law’s Institute for Investor Protection
and the Institute for Law and Economic Policy
Strategies for Investigating and Pleading Securities Fraud Claims
Investors who are victimized by securities fraud must overcome heightened pleading requirements in order to have access to effective judicial remedies. They must gather evidence supporting particularized allegations of fraud before filing -- without the benefit of traditional discovery methods. This workshop will bring together the nation’s leading judges, scholars and practitioners who will discuss traditional and creative pre-filing strategies for successfully uncovering and pleading all of the critical elements of securities fraud. Panelists will address the effective use of whistleblowers, confidential witnesses, collaboration with regulatory agencies and alternative funding sources.
