Securities Class Action FAQs
A class action is a lawsuit initiated to recoup losses by those who have suffered the same harm or experienced similar financial loss. Class actions are powerful procedural tools to hold wrongdoers accountable for widespread damages caused to a group of victims, who individually may not have sufficient damages to support the cost of prosecuting on their own.
On average, it can take from 18 months to three years to conclude, from filing to settlement and distribution. Not all class actions follow this timeframe, as much depends on the unique details of each case. Our client portal and excellent relationships with all stakeholders and steps of the chain makes keeping up to date simple.
Class action alerts refer to notices sent from litigators to individuals, investors, banks, and companies to encourage participation in an ongoing class action case where compensation may be due. For many, keeping track of these opportunities can be overwhelming, which is why our alert system is valued by our clients, globally.
We are provided with a complex formula which is entered into our application to allow us to calculate the recognised loss. The formula takes many elements into consideration such as the holding period/class period, amount of shares, length of holdings and types of shares. When a client is on-boarded we request a specific set of data which then maps to the calculation in our technology and produces an estimate on the recognised loss based on a variety of specific criteria.
Goal prides itself on its compelling and flexible pricing. So much so that it is one of the cornerstones of our business. Typically, Goal will charge a percentage per claim, which is purely contingent and paid upon receipt of the distribution. As the money is paid to Goal, we will usually deduct the percentage before paying the remainder to the client. The reason we offer proof of concepts is to enable us to be as competitive on pricing as possible. Our SaaS Accelerator application has an annual fixed price subscription available.
