First Company to Administer a Securities Class Action Settlement
When we handled the Atlantic Department Stores securities class action settlement in 1974, our team was the first to do so. Since then, we have administered hundreds of cases and distributed billions in settlement benefits. Many of the processes we created are still used in securities matters today, and we continue to innovate with industry-leading technology, a deep bench and fresh approaches.
Specifically, our securities team has considerable experience handling a variety of securities administration matters with varying complexities, including but not limited to:
- Processing and calculating recovery amounts for several types of securities, including common stock, American Depositary Receipts, preferred stock, call and put options, mortgage-backed securities, LEAPS, and bonds processing and calculating recovery amounts for several types of distributions, such as multiple funds, foreign currencies, share distributions and electronic payment distributions and merger administrations that include partnering with The Depository Trust Company (DTC)
- Drafting and formulating class action notices and SEC plans of distribution
- Crafting unique notice and administration programs to accommodate cases with large volumes of class members and limited budgets
