Michael Miarmi Speaks on Securities Fraud Law

Michael Miarmi Speaks on Securities Fraud Law

Michael Miarmi participated today in a panel discussion entitled “Securities Law in 2014: Fraud-on-the-Market Theory Demystified.” Securities litigators from plaintiffs and defense law firms discussed the application of the fraud-on-the-market resumption in securities cases following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Halliburton II.

A partner in Lieff Cabraser’s New York office, Miarmi focuses his practice on representing individual and institutional investors in direct or class cases asserting claims under the federal securities laws or state law. Among his current responsibilities, Michael is a member of the team serving as co-lead counsel for the proposed customer class in In re Bank of New York Mellon Corp. Foreign Exchange Transactions Litigation, seeking to recover losses arising from The Bank of New York Mellon’s alleged misconduct in connection with executing foreign exchange (FX) transactions on behalf of its custodial clients, as well as the team serving as co-lead counsel for the proposed class in Arkansas Teacher Retirement System v. State Street Corp., arising from State Street’s alleged FX-related misconduct.
