The Criminal Defence Solicitors at Wilford Smith, with specialist skills in handling serious fraud cases, have many years’ experience acting on behalf of clients who have become caught up in insider trading investigations.
With a thorough understanding of the financial and corporate sector, our Fraud Team is the best choice for the leading of your defence if you have been accused of engaging in practices such as personal trading, as well as other non-commercial activities such as spread betting, which can result in allegations of insider trading.
Insider trading 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 trading, 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.
