||Nov. 12: "Securities Litigation 101: Commencing and Contesting a Federal Securities Class Action," sponsored by the NYC Bar, will be held in New York, NY at the New York City Bar. A motion to dismiss often proves a decisive event in resolving a federal securities class action, raising the stakes both for defeating or winning the motion. A premier faculty of experienced members of the plaintiff and defense bar will present an overview of the legal issues and strategic considerations that inform the filing of a securities class action and lead plaintiff selection process, the drafting of a securities complaint and the briefing of a motion to dismiss. The panel will address the fundamentals of a securities claim, existing precedent and evolving theories, as seen from both sides of the bar. The panel will also offer practical suggestions to increase each side's chance of success. The presentation will be particularly useful for litigators who are beginning a securities litigation practice as well as seasoned litigators returning to the practice who would like to refresh their knowledge.
