Battea has maintained its leadership position in the fast-moving world of securities class action litigation by continually hunting for news of emerging and newly filed class action litigation. In the U.S. we review all press releases and publicly-available sources related to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (“PSLRA”), which mandates prompt notifications of U.S. securities class actions. Similar litigation publicity exists in Canada due to the competitive environment amongst plaintiff law firms looking for lead plaintiffs.
Drawing upon a variety of databases, we identify, track and monitor litigation as it advances through the various court systems. As an industry pioneer, Battea has developed strong relationships with the law firms that file these cases in the U.S. and Canada so that we can perform any additional due diligence on a particular securities case that reinforces our internal litigation research efforts.
