Insider Trading After Salman

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 | 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
In December, the Supreme Court handed down a unanimous victory for prosecutors in Salman v. U.S. The Court rejected the defendant’s argument that he could not be held liable as a tippee because the tipper had received no monetary or other compensation for the tips. The court’s decision did not fully resolve some difficult issues in tipper-tippee law that arose after the Second Circuit's 2014 decision in U.S. v Newman, which had limited the scope of insider trading prosecutions. At the same time, the Salman decision did not fully adopt government’s expansive arguments. Our panelists will react to the decision in Salman and discuss the current state of insider trading law.

Topics include:
- An introduction to insider trading law
- Ethical and professional responsibilities of market participants
- Changes to insider trader law
- Establishing effective compliance
