Insider trading by brokerage firms or corporate officers and directors will negatively impact investors’ views of the markets. Consequently, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) closely scrutinizes individuals and companies suspected of committing insider trading. In recent years, SEC enforcement actions and federal prosecutions have increased. In any event, any individual or business under investigation for insider trading needs aggressive legal counsel at the earliest opportunity.
Many insider trading investigations and prosecutions center on the use of “material nonpublic information” by people or businesses that are in a position to use this information to make profits in the stock market. In order to make their case, federal authorities will rely on emails, text messages and other communications. As a result, insider trading investigations, like most all white collar criminal investigations, are very document-intensive. Dan C. Guthrie, Jr., is adept at analyzing all of the evidence to find the flaws in the government’s evidence and create a powerful defense.
