Last Wednesday, December 12, PLUS hosted a webinar on the Cyan Decision and “The Post-Cyan Securities Litigation Landscape.” Two of the speakers from that webinar, Doug Greene and Nick Porritt, were able to get together and answer audience questions as well as expand on a few of the topics touched on during the webinar. Listen below to this additional look into the Cyan Decision!
Doug Greene leads BakerHostetler’s firmwide Securities and Governance Litigation Team. Doug has focused on such cases since 1997 and is among a handful of full-time practitioners nationwide. Doug works hard to shape securities law, so that executives can speak publicly without fear of unfair liability. He is committed to making the merits matter again, especially in these smaller cases, by restoring a specialized defense bar; increasing defense counsel’s effectiveness and efficiency; and creating greater collegiality among defense counsel, insurers, and brokers – all critical characteristics in the post-Cyan era.
Nicholas I. Porritt prosecutes securities class actions, shareholder class actions, derivative actions, and mergers and acquisitions litigation. He has extensive experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of complex commercial litigation, including civil fraud, breach of contract, and professional malpractice, as well as defending SEC investigations and enforcement actions.
