Boston Insider Trading Defense Lawyer

Strategic Defense for White Collar Criminal Cases in Massachusetts

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines illegal insider trading as buying or selling a security in breach of a fiduciary duty or other relationship of trust while in possession of material or information made unavailable to the public. While using professional insights and privileges to your advantage might seem like a smart business move, it can actually be considered a white collar crime.

Criminal penalties for insider trading in the United States include:

  • 20 years in prison
  • $5 million in fines (individuals)
  • $25 million in fines (companies)
  • Treble damages in comparison to profits earned

If you are faced with insider trading charges, Boston Defense Attorney Brad Bailey can help you devise a solid defense strategy. In his 35+ years of handling white collar criminal law cases, both as a defender and a prosecutor, he has successfully handled numerous insider trading cases, including the newsworthy United States v. Karunatilaka.

We Can Help You Uphold Your Business’s Reputation

Monetary damages and time spent in prison can certainly be considered as a massively negative impact of an insider trading conviction. The damage that lingers the longest, however, will more likely be the reputation harm your business experiences if you or another company executive is convicted of insider trading to turn a profit or prevent a loss. Partnerships may fall apart as other corporations question your intentions, and consumers may turn away from your company if they fear you cannot be trusted. Boston insider trading defense attorney Brad Bailey makes a point to not only defend his clients from sentencing but also from the harsh stigma that can affect their businesses. By cutting down the prosecution’s claims until they are no longer reasonable or logical, it may be possible to save your reputation from any harm, or possibly bolster it.
