Emerging Trends In ESG-Focused Securities Litigation

ESG Co-chair Jacob Hupart, Securities Litigation Co-chair Douglas P. Baumstein, and Associate Will McKitterick recently co-authored an article in Law360 about the latest trends in securities litigation related to ESG. They analyze the current state of private securities fraud litigation pertaining to corporate ESG disclosures, identify common themes in the limited rulings to date, and offer several practical suggestions to avoid or mitigate related liability.

The authors wrote, “The overall volume of civil securities class actions focused on ESG allegations is expected to increase in coming years, based upon the interest of many market participants in ESG-focused investing and the frequent criticisms leveled at such behavior.”
