Michael Cypers (Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw), Securities Litigation: State of the Art Methods to Navigate the Civil and Criminal Minefields

Securities litigation requires the practitioner to draw on a broad range of skills, from knowledge of recent Supreme Court opinions to persuading a jury. Since Enron, there has been an explosion of developments from the courts, Congress, and the SEC, and a number of high profile executives have been sentenced to jail for criminal misconduct. This session will discuss the practical methods securities litigators use to maximize results for their clients.
