    Lead Plaintiff in Securities and Investment Class Actions

    The lead plaintiff in these cases is typically the class member who has the “largest financial interest” the class suit. This plaintiff is representative of all the others in the class. In most cases, the courts appoint the lead plaintiff. The designation as lead plaintiff is coveted because the lead plaintiff has control over the direction of the case. In some cases, there may be more than one co-lead plaintiff. Class members have 60 days from filing to apply for this designation. The courts determination may be based either on the amount of money lost or the percentage of net worth loss.

    Settling Securities and Investment Fraud Class Actions

    These types of class action lawsuits rarely make it all the way to trial. If they are initially found to have merit and are not dismissed early on, they usually resolve with a settlement. Plaintiffs can recover up to the amount that was lost because of the improper conduct, but they usually must settle for less.
