Welcome to the Settlement website for the class action lawsuit Rubinstein v. Gonzalez, Case No. 14-cv-9465, known as AbbVie Securities Litigation, pending in the US District Court, Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division (the “Action”).

Plaintiff Dawn Bradley, (“Plaintiff”) on behalf of herself and the proposed Class (defined below), have reached a proposed settlement of the Action that, if approved, will result in the creation of a settlement fund of $16.75 million.

If you are a member of the Class, your rights will be affected and you may be eligible for a payment from the Settlement. The Class consists of:

All Persons who purchased or otherwise acquired American Depository Shares or “ADS” or purchased call options or sold put options (collectively, “Securities”) of Shire plc (“Shire”) between September 29, 2014, and October 14, 2014, inclusive. Excluded from the Class are: Defendants and their families; the officers and directors of the Company during the Class Period; members of their immediate families and their legal representatives, heirs, successors or assigns, and any entity in which Defendants have or had a controlling interest; and persons that exclude themselves from the Class.

If you are a member of the Class, in order to be potentially eligible to receive a payment under the proposed Settlement, you must submit a Claim Form no later than December 4, 2019. Payments to Authorized Claimants will be made only if the Court approves the Settlement and a Plan of Allocation, and only after any appeals are resolved, and after the completion of all claims processing. Please be patient, as this process will take some time to complete.
