Insider Trading Powerful Defense From an Experienced Attorney

Miami Insider Trading Attorney

Insider Trading Defense in Florida

In most cases, 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, then pursues civil legal action against the defendant. A conviction of insider training can jeopardize your career, your ability to find housing, and can cause harm to your reputation. At the Law Office of Joel DeFabio, our Miami insider trading lawyer offers decades of experience to fight for your rights and protect your innocence.

Get started on your case now by calling (305) 851-5581 or contacting our firm online.

Consequences of a Insider Trading Conviction

Being investigated for insider trading is a scary experience. A conviction could result in serious consequences, so it is important to plan effectively and build a strong strategy for your future.

Some consequences could include:

  • Injunctive relief against the defendant
  • Court orders to return the monies obtained through insider trading
  • Civil penalties calculated at triple the amount gained or the amount of loss avoided
  • Being barred from continuing to act in a senior position in a publicly traded company
  • Additional 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.

Local Knowledge for High-Profile Cases

As a hub of commerce, finance, and international business, Miami is no stranger to insider trading. Whether you hold a position as a corporate officer, director, or manager of a major corporation, or if you are lower in the hierarchy, you can still be charged with insider trading and pursued aggressively by federal prosecutors.

With The Law Offices of Joel DeFabio, you can tell your side of the story and learn about the strategies that we can use in your defense. Do not hesitate to seek our help as early as possible in the case. By agreeing to discuss the situation with investigators instead of your federal crimes lawyer, you will only be helping out the prosecution by providing invaluable and possibly incriminating evidence.

Call (305) 851-5581 now for your initial consultation with our Miami insider trading lawyer.
