Wrapping it up, 26 November 2008

One event for in the diary, notes on one that has taken place and updated links here on WV&Z:

Grant & Eisenhofer PA’s 8th Global Shareholder Activism Conference (details, programme) takes place in New York from 4-6 December. (The 9th is in London, 23-24 April 2009.) Alexander Reus of Diaz Reus LLP and Andree Nesselrodt of DekaBank Deutsche Girozentrale, a Diaz Reus client, are on the panel of the luncheon breakout session IV-C Class Action Settlements on the Friday. Unrelated to the event, both Reus and Nesselrodt (a Vice President and Senior Legal Counsel with DekaBank) are quoted in the Financial Times Deutschland (in German) earlier this year, as are Geoffrey C. Jarvis of G&E and Winheller Rechtsanwälte’s Stefan Winheller, on the role German investors may play in US class actions.

ClassActionBlawg.com has published notes on the 12th Annual National Institute on Class Actions conference (previous post), including on the “Class Actions Sans Frontières” presentation.

NERA Economic Consulting’s new topic specific website Securities Litigation Trends has been added to the Resources links section (right column). It has NERA’s reports on SEC settlement trends and shareholder class action trends, settlement documents and a weekly securities blog digest among other things all in one place. In the past few weeks a number of plaintiffs’ firms has changed firm names and domain names accordingly. These have been amended in the Firms / US / Plaintiffs links section (right column).

My friends at Tilburg University have recently launched the Tilburg Institute of Comparative and Transnational Law (TICOM). The Institute “aims to be a leading institute for scholarly research into law as an international phenomenon… [It] questions the relevance of territorial and dogmatic borders delineating both national jurisdictions and the classical areas of law.” (original emphasis) Their link has been added to Resources as well. WV&Z wishes TICOM and all involved all the best.
