In the past few months, there have been significant developments in the world of insider trading, whistleblowers, and the SEC’s stated intent to bring more administrative proceedings. This program will address the impact of the Second Circuit’s recent insider trading opinion in U.S. v. Newman and Chiasson and the practical consequences of the SEC’s stated course. Another panel will discuss the implications of the growing presence of whistleblower reporting, whether to self-report, and the increasing possibility of parallel proceedings. And our final panel will focus on the boundaries of rules governing private placements, the importance of compliance with rules and conditions of exempt offerings, and the consequences of any failures.
