On Tuesday, September 27, the New York City Bar offers Insider Trading 2011: Current Trends & Recent Developments in the Investigation, Prosecution & Defense of Insider Trading Cases. The program is at the New York City Bar, 42 West 44th Street in New York City. It begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 8:00 p.m.
In the past two years, insider trading has become one of the highest enforcement priorities for both the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Justice. Both agencies have devoted unprecedented resources to investigating insider trading violations, employed wiretaps and other aggressive investigative techniques, and ventured into new substantive territories. The result has been an unprecedented number of criminal and civil investigations and prosecutions, which have led lawyers, traders and other securities industry professionals to focus on the sometimes murky boundary between legitimate research and illegality.
A panel of experts from government, industry, and law firms who focus on insider trading issues will discuss the substantive law of insider trading, with an emphasis on the new frontiers being explored in recent cases.
Among the faculty are Jodi Misher Peikin, Morvillo, Abramowitz, Grand, Iason, Anello & Bohrer, P.C.; Steven R. Peikin, Sullivan & Cromwell LLP; George S. Canellos, regional director, New York Office, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission; Alan M. Cohen, executive vice president and global head of compliance, The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.; and Richard B. Zabel, chief of the Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney’s Office, SDNY.
