Insider Trading

Duncan Lewis Business Fraud Solicitors – Insider Trading

 

Insider trading not only skews the market but can also result in investors losing considerable sums of money through not having access to the same information as “rogue” traders.

 

Insider trading allegations may affect an individual trader, a company or a group or ring of traders working together.

 

Insider trading allegations will usually involve “tipping” or dealing shares as a result of tipping.

 

If insider trading is suspected or uncovered, it is possible for traders who are innocent of any malpractice to face investigation also.

 

Any investigation into serious fraud and white collar crime is thorough and intrusive to those caught up in it, who are likely to face intense scrutiny until the investigation is completed.

 

It is vital to take legal advice from a specialist business fraud solicitor with expertise in defending insider trading allegations and tipping or dealing as soon as possible.

 

Duncan Lewis business fraud solicitors can advise on insider trading offences at any stage, including if there is a possibility that an investigation might be launched – or allegations might be made and charges brought.

 

Allegations of insider trading need to be dealt with robustly, as serious fraud investigations can affect reputations, careers, future employment potential – and ultimately, income and home life.

 

A conviction on charges of insider trading – or of being part of a cartel or insider ring – usually carries a lengthy custodial sentence. It is also likely that heavy financial penalties will be imposed on a trader convicted of tipping or dealing.

 

When an investigation is launched by investigating agencies such as the SFO or FCA, Duncan Lewis business fraud solicitors offer expert representation for interview under caution – and can advise on compliance and any search of business premises.

 

Duncan Lewis can also liaise with the agencies which may be involved in a fraud investigation, including:

  • City of London Police
  • Department of Business Innovation (BIS)
  • Department of Trade and Industry (DTI)
  • Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
  • National Crime Agency (NCA)
  • Office of Fair Trading (OFT)
  • Serious Fraud Office (SFO)
  • Solicitors’ Regulation Authority’s (SRA) Fraud and Confidential Intelligence Bureau.
