This chapter explores the various claims that can be brought by plaintiffs in shareholder litigation. It examines the legal elements and general characteristics that distinguish each of the basic causes of action, as well as those underlying features that the various claims have in common. The chapter also identifies the common features of the basic causes of action that enable many such claims to be treated together under the common rubric of shareholder litigation, and also considers the statistical measures of shareholder litigation.
