This webcast will highlight important recent developments in the government’s ongoing crackdown on insider trading, including lessons learned from recent high-profile criminal trials and debated legal issues. The panel will address:
- The recent separate trials of former SAC Capital portfolio managers Mathew Martoma and Michael Steinberg in the Southern District of New York.
- The effect prosecutions involving information from expert networks may have on the “mosaic theory.” Mosaic theory is the concept under which the SEC theoretically permits investors to piece together immaterial nonpublic information to form an investment thesis.
- The sentences—usually no jail time—handed down to defendants who plead guilty and cooperate with the government’s investigation, versus the relatively long sentences of defendants who are convicted at trial.
The panel will include Carl (Chip) H. Loewenson, Jr., co-head of the Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White Collar Defense Practice Group at Morrison & Foerster LLP, and Allen D. Applbaum, Senior Managing Director and Global Leader of FTI Consulting’s Global Risk & Investigations Practice. Mssrs. Loewenson and Applbaum are both former Assistant U.S. Attorneys for the Southern District of New York.
