Insider dealing involves the misuse of information whilst trading investments in the UK markets, also known as a form of ‘market abuse’. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), formerly the Financial Services Authority (FSA), has wide ranging powers to take action against anyone suspected of market abuse or whose conduct falls below acceptable standards.
Insider dealing cases have historically been very difficult to prove and prosecute, given the amount of detail and information that has to be gathered. However, insider dealing is being aggressively targeted by the authorities and the number of prosecutions in on the increase.
The team at Hodge Jones & Allen has a wealth of experience advising clients suspected of insider dealing. The importance of early legal advice cannot be underestimated, and as such we advise our clients from the moment an allegation arises. The technical abilities of our lawyers enable us to provide a seamless service from FCA interview under compulsion, through to trial and potential confiscation.
