Wall Street to The Hill: The Continuing Evolution of Insider Trading Investigations

Panelists: Thomas M. Melsheimer, Pamela Chepiga, Joel M. Cohen, Benjamin Singer, J. Gilmore Childers
Moderator: Philip H. Hilder

Wiretaps, informants, the mosaic theory and even political intelligence are all terms now associated with insider trading cases. The risks of being too successful and bearing the burden of proving that you did not trade on the basis of material nonpublic information increases every day. And the definition of “nonpublic” has become all too vague in the age of social media, porous corporate walls and a political environment that thrives on leaks. Explore these issues, the latest cases and legislation, including SEC plans to bring in-house administrative proceedings, the recently enacted STOCK Act (Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge), and the House Office of General Counsel’s constitutional arguments rebutting the SEC’s overreach.
