The sudden hike in prices of Game Stop shares and several other stocks, which led stock-trading company Robinhood to restrict trade of those shares in January, raised a huge number of questions for discussion. But one of Robinhood chief legal officer Dan Gallagher’s main takeaways is one that just about any corporate counsel could relate to: the power of social media.

Gallagher discussed the events of late January, among other topics, on Thursday in a Q&A session with Stanford Law professor Joseph A. Grundfest and Securities Docket editor Bruce Carton, as part of the 2021 Securities Enforcement Forum West virtual event.
