Increasingly forceful attempts have been made in recent years to clamp down on illegal business practices in the financial and corporate sectors, with the powers held by regulatory bodies charged with making sure that rules are adhered to being strengthened in this regard.
If you are the subject of an investigation relating to insider dealing, the specialist Financial Crime Solicitors at Wilford Smith can provide you with a top-level, solutions-driven strategy to ensure your position is best protected.
Insider dealing is the misuse of information in the trading of investments within the UK’s financial sector, often taking the form of conducting trades while being in possession of inside information, and in many cases the encouraging of others to engage in similar trades. As the main regulator of the financial markets, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has the power to investigate allegations of insider dealing and to bring criminal proceedings, alongside its role in regulatory enforcement, when there is evidence of misconduct by institutions and individuals in the financial services industry. If you find yourself subject to an investigation by the FCA in relation to insider dealing, speaking to one of Wilford Smith’s Financial Crime Solicitors at the earliest stage can prove invaluable in conducting a robust defence to any charges that may be forthcoming.
