Insider Trading


Massachusetts SEC Litigation Attorneys

Brokers accused of insider trading often seek out their own defense counsel. This is a good choice for many reasons because a dedicated defense lawyer will protect the individual broker rather than the brokerage firm.

The Denner Criminal Defense Group, a Massachusetts law firm with an office in Boston, has attorneys who use their many years of experience to build strong cases for clients charged with insider trading. As criminal defense attorneys known for handling high-profile cases, we are able to explore all available options and identify the best defense strategy.

Consequences of an Insider Trading Conviction

Being charged with insider trading is not a minor cost of doing business. It can ruin an otherwise great career. If found guilty, a broker or trader will face negative publicity, social stigma and embarrassment that will affect family and friends. If convicted, most people will be unable to find another job in the industry. The need to make restitution can bankrupt someone convicted of insider trading. Jail or prison time is common.

Examples of Our Insider Trading Cases

Defending against insider trading charges requires someone who practices in federal court and who knows the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other federal and state regulatory agencies. Our law firm has successfully defended clients charged with:

  • Trading a corporation’s securities while working as an employee, officer or director who learned of confidential information
  • People who traded after receiving confidential information from an employee or director
  • Employees of service providers who traded their customers’ stock after acquiring confidential information while serving as attorneys, printers, marketers or bankers
  • Government employees who traded stock based on information gained through an investigation

How We Help

We investigate the charges thoroughly to demonstrate that our client had only limited access to the information. We also analyze the stock price to see whether any tell-tale price movement occurred after the alleged insider trading. We serve as the client’s spokesperson to ensure that he or she is not convicted outside the courtroom. We make sure that the facts fit the charges.
