This article examines damages in shareholder class actions for misleading conduct and disclosure breaches by listed companies. There are a number of legal methods that can be used to quantify shareholders’ losses – each is considered along with its problems. In conjunction with this analysis, the article discusses the practical mechanics of measuring loss, the rationales for the payment of damages to shareholders, and settlement.
The Future of Law – Sir Geoffrey Vos
In this article, the Chancellor of the High Court of England and Wales presents his vision for the future of lawyers, courts and judges in the coming decades. He mainly addresses the business lawyers’ environment, but also touches on criminal, family and administrative matters. The Chancellor’s thesis is that Fintech, Legaltech and Regtech will revolutionise the way we educate, train, and utilise legal expertise, and that while some of the changes may be slower than people expect many will be much faster.
