Shareholder Litigation in Washington State

Publication Year: 2014   Publication Type: Deskbook


This volume provides a ready reference for the Washington practitioner faced with potential shareholder litigation or considering legal remedies on behalf of a shareholder of a Washington corporation. The editorial board was made up of five members of the securities defense bar and five members whose practice has traditionally been on the plaintiffs’ side of securities litigation, thus ensuring a non-biased and fair description of the state of Washington law related to those issues that are most commonly raised in shareholder litigation.
