Jason de Bretteville

practice group and co-chair of the firm’s Enforcement Defense & Investigations practice group, was quoted by Westlaw Journal
regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in Cyan Inc. et al. v. Beaver County Employees Retirement Fund et al

The Supreme Court unanimously agreed that “state courts have concurrent jurisdiction with federal courts over class-action lawsuits that only allege violations of the Securities Act of 1933.”

White Collar Defense shareholder Jason de Bretteville and associate Kenny Hsu were published in the Westlaw Journal’s White Collar Crime Litigation News and Analysis section with their expert analysis of the much anticipated oral arguments in Salman v. United States. In the article, “Supreme Court Revisits Insider Trading’s Personal Benefit Requirement,” de Bretteville and Hsu argue that a majority of the court appeared to be reluctant to break from precedent and would likely “be comfortable with reaffirming — or at most, slightly clarifying — the standards for imposing liability that existed before the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ landmark decision in United States v. Newman.”
