On Friday, April 12, Professor Michael Perino will present a paper entitled Setting Attorneys’ Fees in Securities Class Actions: An Empirical Assessment at the 19th Annual Symposium of the Institute for Law and Economic Policy in Naples, Florida. Co-written with University of Texas Law Professors Lynn Baker and Charles Silver, the paper analyzes, among other things, the effect that ex ante fee agreements have on fee awards in securities class actions. Papers from the conference will be published in an upcoming issue of the Vanderbilt Law Review. The paper is not yet available on SSRN.
