About This MeetingIn Fifth Third v. Dudenhoeffer, the Supreme Court ruled that ESOP fiduciaries are no longer presumed to be prudent when investing in company stock, but also laid out a series of guidelines that may make it more difficult for many plaintiffs to prevail. This Webinar will review what the court decided with a particular focus on what it means for private companies.
- What is the presumption of prudence and what does it mean now that it is gone?
- What are the new pleading standards created by the court?
- Will this decision matter to private company ESOPs?
