Kessler Topaz partner Darren Check recently participated in a panel discussion to highlight the rise in corporate scandals and shareholder litigation on a global scale.
Check appeared at the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS) Directors & Officers Symposium in New York to provide insight on the driving factors behind 2016’s record-setting number of international securities litigation cases. The segment was titled “Behaving Badly: The Non-U.S. Corporate Scandal Wave.”
Check, who serves as the firm’s director of institutional relations, highlighted the growing number of cases in 2016 in nations across the globe, with particularly notable increases in Taiwan, Australia and the Netherlands. Securities litigation within the U.S. was also at a record high in 2016.
Check speaks often on the subject of international securities litigation. In addition to handling domestic securities cases, he currently assists clients in Canada, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, the U.K., Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Australia, and throughout Asia and the Middle East.
