RM LAW, P.C. announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of all persons or entities that purchased First American Financial Corporation. ("First American" or the "Company") (NYSE: FAF) securities during the period from February 17, 2017 through October 22, 2020 inclusive (the “Class Period”).
First American shareholders may, no later than December 24, 2020 move the Court for appointment as a lead plaintiff of the Class. If you purchased shares of First American and would like to learn more about these claims or if you wish to discuss these matters and have any questions concerning this announcement or your rights, contact Richard A.

The Company made false and misleading statements to the market. First American failed to maintain security procedures to protect the personal information of its customers from hackers and other intruders. The Company also faced an increased risk of cyberattacks due to automation and efficiency initiatives it undertook. Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about First American, investors suffered damages.
If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than December 24, 2020 request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as "lead plaintiff." Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain RM LAW, P.C. or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.
