Insider trading is a critical area of criminal and civil securities enforcement and will likely remain so for some time to come. Following the Second Circuit’s recent ground-breaking decision in United States v. Newman, however, the law’s contours are in flux. This program will discuss the state of the law, enforcement priorities in this area, and how clients can avoid the government’s crosshairs. Don't miss out on this highly topical program. Our faculty of experienced litigators, current and former DOJ prosecutors and SEC enforcement attorneys, and compliance professionals will address the implications of Newman, current and future areas of enforcement, and best compliance practices to prevent insider trading conduct.

WilmerHale Partner Anjan Sahni will speak in the session “Compliance Programs and Best Practices: Avoiding Enforcement Actions” focusing on the following topics:

  • Anatomy of an insider trading compliance program
  • Institutional concerns
  • Best compliance programs
  • Addressing a government investigation
