Deeper Trends in Securities Class Actions 2006-2015, Figure 10

In addition to the interactive charts used in our analysis, our developers had some fun experimenting with this bubble chart illustrating the differences between emerging firm (in orange) and established firm (in blue) settlements reached in 2015 alone. This chart shows settlement size by relative area of the circles. The shade of color for each circle represents settlement timing, with the lightest shades representing cases that settled during early pleading and the darkest shades representing cases that settled during discovery. Rolling over a particular settlement will reveal additional information collected by Stanford Securities Litigation Analytics about each case. We will continue refining this chart, including it's functionality and design for use in future posts and welcome any feedback with respect to this chart or any others on our site.
