Volkswagen and the Emergence of D&O Litigation Involving Non-US Companies

vw-do-litigation-150x112This quarter, Advisen’s D&O Claims Trends webinar focused on the impact of the Volkswagen diesel-emissions rigging scandal on the global D&O marketplace.  The event has triggered shareholder litigation in the United States, a potential investor claim in the Netherlands and investigations in Germany.  The VW case follows several other scandals involving global companies – including Tesco, Petrobras, and Toshiba – that have led to claims both inside and outside of the United States.

Advisen assembled a group of expert attorneys knowledgeable about the issues of shareholder litigation involving non-US companies and the issues and procedures for filing cases involving them.
