Rosenfeld for and on behalf of Deutsche Bank AG vs. Achleitner et al. – Is there a threat of a wave of shareholder lawsuits against board members of Austrian companies in the USA?


The derivative suit filed by Ms Zahava Rosenfeld in a New York court against all board members of Deutsche Bank AG is not only a novelty for the board liability debate in Germany, but also affects Austrian public limited companies, as they may also be affected by such suits.


This means that Austria is also threatened with a migration of such lawsuits to the United States, which should significantly increase the likelihood of the enforcement of directors' liability claims.
