Miami Insider Trading Attorney

About Insider Trading Charges

Most insider trading cases involve an investigation and prosecution on the part of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC learns about an instance of insider trading through a whistleblower or through its own monitoring and regulatory activities, and then pursues civil legal action against the defendant. The results of such prosecution can include injunctive relief against the defendant, court orders to return the monies obtained through insider trading, and even civil penalties calculated at triple the amount gained or the amount of loss avoided. Those who are involved in the insider trading may additionally be barred from continuing to act in a senior position in a publicly traded company.

In addition to the civil penalties associated with insider trading, the defendant in such a case may additionally face criminal prosecution from the U.S. Department of Justice. Depending on the circumstances of the case, the criminal penalties for insider trading will often be far more severe than those available through the SEC. A conviction can be punished by up to 20 years in federal prison and a $5 million fine. Insider trading and the related offense of securities fraud may not be violent and they may not involve drugs, but they are still crimes and are fully punishable as such. If you are being investigated or face prosecution for alleged insider trading, you need a proven Miami federal crime attorney to guide you through the legal process and fight to clear your name and defend your future.
