Cornerstone Research has worked with attorneys in numerous securities matters, including trials and summary judgments. The objective, state-of-the-art analysis that we have provided in thousands of securities cases, spanning many areas of finance and economics, has earned us a reputation for excellence and effectiveness.
Drawing on decades of academic research on security price formation, we have developed innovative approaches to evaluating alternative per-share damages scenarios and modeling settlement outcomes in Rule 10b-5 and Section 11 and 12 claims. Our analyses addressing loss causation, market efficiency, and trading behavior have supported successful Daubert challenges and arguments on class certification and summary judgment.
Cornerstone Research also cosponsors the Securities Class Action Clearinghouse with Stanford Law School, the leading source of data on the financial and economic characteristics of securities class action litigation and an invaluable tool in the analysis of class action trends.
Our securities expertise extends beyond securities class actions and includes issues related to asset and business valuation, trading behavior, market manipulation, fixed income, derivatives, and company stock cases related to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Case experience across a variety of industries, including energy, financial institutions, high technology, and pharmaceuticals, has proved important in analyzing industry-specific factors in securities cases.
