West Palm Beach Insider Trading Lawyer
West Palm Beach White Collar Crime Attorney
The term “insider trading” has negative connotations in the public consciousness. However, there are legal forms of insider trading, as well as the illegal type. For example, when those within a company (employees, officers, board members, etc.) buy and sell the company’s stock, they are required to report their trades to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These types of trades are legal. However, stock in the company that is bought or sold based upon information not available to the public and/or the transaction is not reported as required by the SEC, the trade becomes illegal.
