The Klein Law Firm announces that a class action complaint has been filed on behalf of shareholders of United Microelectronics Corporation (NYSE: UMC) who purchased shares between October 28, 2015 and November 1, 2018. The action, which was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that the Company violated federal securities laws.
