Fraud & Financial Crime

Insider Dealing

Our fraud and financial crime services include the provision of defence for insider dealing cases. Also known as insider trading, this offence is where a professional has been operating on the stock market with inside information which gives them an unfair advantage over the rest of the traders in the City. This has been a criminal offence since 1985. However it is an extremely complex area of law and not only covers shares, but all other company securities too. In particular, an individual commits this type of criminal offence when:

  • they have insider information that is price-sensitive in relation to shares
  • That they deal in those shares or has encouraged another individual to do so
  • they have passed inside information to someone else
  • the dealing takes place through a broker or another professional intermediary
  • the dealing takes place on a regulated market (even outside of the UK)

Insider Dealing

Being accused of insider dealing is an extremely serious charge. Consequently as a result you will probably be feeling upset and worried about what this means for your future.
