Financial Economics Expert in Securities Fraud
A financial economics expert was needed for a stockholder class action securities fraud case. The plaintiff was a global enterprise and the defendant was a mobile satellite communications manufacturer. The plaintiff claimed that the defendant distorted their stock trading price with falsely optimistic public disclosures. The plaintiff claimed to have overpaid for their stock while the price was artificially inflated. At issue was whether damages were incurred by purchasing this stock and whether the price exceeded the actual value of the stock.

The expert needed to have a background in the stock market, with specific knowledge of 10b-5 fraud-on-the-market cases.
