Defending Against Charges Of Insider Trading

A Serious Charge That Can Be Hard To Prove

Insider trading is a serious criminal charge alleging that a person used nonpublic insider financial information about a company to make decisions about the purchase or sale of stock. Someone who is convicted of insider trading can face years in prison and hefty fines if convicted. But insider trading can be hard to prove, as it requires the prosecution to know details not only about insider trading law, but also of the specifics of the trades made by the accused. One should not assume, however, that insider trading is impossible to prove. If you’ve been charged with this crime, you need a knowledgeable insider trading attorney to protect your interests. In the West Chester, Pennsylvania, area, call Bellwoar Kelly, LLP to discuss your case with an attorney who can evaluate your case and get to work defending your rights.

While You Wait, The Prosecution Builds Its Case

While insider trading charges can sometimes be hard to prove, this doesn’t mean the charges aren’t serious and potentially damaging. If you’re aware of an investigation building against you or have already been charged, you need a lawyer immediately who can begin to study the details of your case to determine where the prosecution’s weaknesses are. For example, the prosecution has to prove not only that you possessed nonpublic insider information, but also that the information was “material,” meaning that an investor would likely use that information when making investing decisions. An experienced criminal defense attorney will know how to exploit any such weaknesses in the prosecution’s case to build the best defense in your situation.
