You don't always think of securities attorneys who play a key role in the fight against sexual harassment, but that's exactly what happened after #MeToo. Shareholder derivative lawsuits have arisen in response to revelations of sexual misconduct by executives or celebrities in an attempt to hold companies accountable.
On this episode of The Jabot, I speak to Molly J. Bowen and Julie Goldsmith Reiser of Cohen Milstein about their representation of Alphabet shareholders in a case regarding the submission of allegations of sexual harassment by the company that led to a settlement of 310 Millions of dollars have led to what has been hailed as a precedent framework.
The Jabot podcast is an offshoot of the Above the Law brand that focuses on the challenges women, colored people, LGBTQIA and other diverse populations face in the legal industry. Our name comes from none other than the infamous Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the jabot (decorative collar) she wears when delivering dissent from the bank. It is a reminder that we are a powerful force to reckon with even when we do not win.
Have fun while listening!
