  • SECURITIES CLASS ACTION FILINGS
    2021 Midyear Assessment

    Number of Securities Class Action Filings Falls to Lowest Level Since 2015. SPAC-related filings increase sharply in first half of 2021.
    The report found that the decline in filing activity was largely driven by a 66% drop in filings related to mergers and acquisitions compared to the second half of 2020. Of the 112 filings in the first half of 2021, only 12 were M&A filings. Federal and state court class actions alleging claims under the Securities Act of 1933 also declined, continuing the trend observed in 2020.
