Menlo Park, CA — Lex Machina, a LexisNexis company, today releases its annual Securities Litigation Report. The report examines trends in securities litigation in federal district courts and appellate courts. Focusing on the three-year period from 2020 to 2022, it surveys emerging trends in case filings, venues, judges, law firms, parties, timing metrics, case resolutions, findings, and damages. The report often focuses on different sets of data, e.g., filtering cases in order to provide analytics on general securities cases, shareholder derivative suit cases, class action securities cases, cryptocurrency cases, SPAC cases, and securities appellate cases.
“We’ve been tracking a general increase in securities cases since 2016, and this report revealed some interesting recent changes in litigation trends,” said Laura Hopkins, Lex Machina's securities legal data expert and editor of the report. “By looking at our data and analytics, we uncovered the beginnings of a slow-down in securities litigation over the past one to two years. Furthermore, our filters revealed this litigation pattern was reflected in several key subsets of securities cases including shareholder derivative cases, cryptocurrency cases, and SPAC cases. We look forward to continuing to monitor these litigation trends as they unfold in the future.”
Highlights from the report include:
