This past June marked the three-year anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Janus Capital Group, Inc. v. First Derivative Traders. Janus, in holding that primary liability for misstatements to investors under Rule 10b-5 could not attach to anyone but those who had "ultimate authority" over the content and communication of the alleged misstatement, held the potential to have a significant impact upon the way securities fraud cases are brought and litigated, not only by private investors, but also by the SEC and the Department of Justice.
In this webcast, a panel of leading securities enforcement and private securities litigation practitioners will discuss how courts have applied Janus over the last three years, and the impact of Janus and its progeny on the SEC, DOJ, and private enforcement landscape.
Areas of focus are expected to include:
(1) The extent to which courts have extended Janus to criminal and SEC enforcement context
(2) SEC's approach to charging individual defendants post-Janus
(3) Janus and the continuing vitality of "scheme liability"
(4) Pleading considerations in the private litigation context

Join them as they analyze:
• The difference in the ability of welded producers to raise prices in response to rising costs more than seamless producers

• When will seamless mills catch up to rising scrap costs?
There will be time for Q&A - you may submit questions to our experts during the webinar or before by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
