Illegal insider trading is the purchase or sale of a security, in breach of a fiduciary duty or other relationship of trust and confidence, while in possession of material, nonpublic information about the security.  Insider trading cases can be extremely complex and prosecutions by federal agencies continue to rise. 

Bienert Katzman Littrell Williams LLP has been involved in multiple cases involving allegations that corporate officers, directors, employees, business associates, family members, friends, and other “tippees” have traded securities after receiving material, nonpublic information about them.  We have an in-depth understanding of state and federal securities regulations and have represented clients in civil and criminal investigations and actions filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the U.S. Department of Justice.
