Benjamin Edwards and Anthony Rickey on Hidden Conflicts in Securities Litigation

Benjamin Edwards, associate professor of law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and Anthony Rickey, founder of Margrave Law LLC, join the Business Scholarship Podcast to discuss their recent article Uncovering the Hidden Conflicts in Securities Class Action Litigation: Lessons From the State Street Case. Edwards and Rickey examine potential plaintiff-side attorney conflicts in securities class actions that persist despite passage of reform legislation in the 1990s. They propose new litigation disclosures as a way to combat those potential conflicts.
