The storm has passed and the sun is shining down on chilly Times Square for the second day of the PLUS D&O Symposium. For those at the conference and for those stranded at home by the weather, I wanted to pass along a couple of links as an accompaniment for today’s conference panels.


First, I wanted to pass along a link to a podcast posted yesterday on the webpage for the LexisNexis Corporate and Securities Law Community. The podcast, in which I discuss trends in corporate and securities litigation during 2010, can be found here. The podcast content provides a complement to the discussion during yesterday’s first panel at the conference.


Second, for those of you who have not seen it already, I wanted to make sure to pass along a link to the February 2011 Advisen report entitled "Merger Objection Lawsuits: A Threat to Primary D&O Insurers?" The report, which can be found here, provides useful statistical detail and additional commentary regarding the growing levels of M&A related litigation. Full disclosure: I provided commentary for the Advisen report.


To those at the conference, enjoy the rest of the day. Please say hello if we have not yet had a chance to meet yet.


By the way, I took the picture of Times Square accompanying this post this morniing using my camera phone. "I want to wake up/ in a city/ that doesn’t sleep…"
