Lawsuits are often filed in the wake of corporate scandals. Some of the typical lawsuits include the following: shareholder lawsuits against the directors of the company for wrongdoing or breach of duty. that caused harm to the company; securities litigation instituted by holders of securities against listed companies and their directors for mismanagement that resulted in a decrease in the value of the securities; product liability lawsuits brought by consumers or other interested parties against manufacturers and those involved in the distribution chain for product defects; lawsuits brought by employees who are subject to disciplinary actions for unfair dismissal by their employers; and class action lawsuits against companies brought by groups of consumers with similar claims.
