The last several years have seen law enforcement and regulatory bodies sharpen their focus on trading activity in the securities and derivatives markets. This focus has coincided with the advent of new and expanded reporting, surveillance, and enforcement powers that arose from responses to the financial crisis. Prosecutors and regulators are using those powers daily to enforce both newer and longstanding restrictions on trading activity. New developments and precedents emerge nearly every day, and the key events merit full attention in the design of trading strategies, the implementation of compliance programs, and—when necessary—the development of legal defenses.

This webinar will serve as a practical guide to keep asset managers, broker-dealers, and other trading firms current on important legal developments in this area.

Topics will include

  • Insider trading
  • Significant regulatory developments in the financial services sector within the last year
  • Recent government litigation and enforcement activity
