Jeffrey Lubitz

In the following guest post, Jeffrey Lubitz, Executive Director of ISS Securities Class Action Services, takes a look at securities class action settlements in 2021, including aggregate figures and the largest individual settlements during the year. Jeff also notes several important trends and developments in collective investor actions outside the U.S during 2021. A version of this article previously was published on the ISS Insights blog (here). Please note that the 2021 figures below are preliminary; the final calculations will be published in January 2022. The 2021 settlement figures include all settlements with a settlement hearing date between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021; some hearings currently scheduled to take place before year end potentially could be pushed into 2022, which would shift the settlement into the 2022 settlement year. I would like to thank Jeff for allowing me to publish his article as a guest post on this site. I welcome guest post submissions from responsible authors on topics of interest to this blog’s readers. Please contact me directly if you would like to submit a guest post. Here is Jeff’s article.
