Insider Dealing & Market Abuse Investigations

We know that an investigation by the Financial Conduct Authority (or a similar prosecution agency) for insider dealing or market abuse can cause stress and disruption. We strive to reduce that disruption for your business.

If you find yourself being investigated, you need the best legal defence available. Call Paul Haycock on 0114 274 4275 or contact us online to find out how we can help.

Experience with Insider Dealing And Market Abuse Investigations

We have gained an outstanding reputation for providing advice and assistance to individuals or companies caught up in insider dealing or market abuse investigations.

Our team has vast experience dealing with cases and have represented approved persons working for FCA regulated firms. We’ve also helped non FCA regulated individuals including City professionals and traders.

We’re recognised in the independent guides, Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, as industry leaders for defending financial crime investigations. Our Regulatory & Criminal Investigation Group have defended many high profile insider dealing and market abuse investigations. Several members of our expert team have also been seconded to the FCA Enforcement Division, giving us a real understanding of this kind of work.

A Strong Legal Defence

We provide the legal advice you need to best protect your interests. We can advise you on the various techniques used by the FCA or CPS to gather information and evidence.

This includes:

  • Search and seizure
  • Document and information production
  • Interviews under caution.

Given the public uproar about banking scandals, the required FCA’s sanctions are becoming increasingly severe. If you’re the subject of an investigation, you should contact our expert legal team as soon as possible. Advice at this stage of the investigation can be crucial to the outcome.

A Considerate and Sensitive Approach

Our experienced team ensure you understand your rights at each stage of the process. We unravel complex law and gather the evidence and witnesses you need to create a strong defence. We do this to prevent your case from going to court or to trial.

As leading lawyers within our field, our experiences in investigations and prosecutions are first class. Our clients trust us to defend and protect their interests, which is why we work 24/7, so we’re available when you need us.

Costs And Funding

We know that costs are a major concern, so we keep you up-to-date with cost estimates for each stage of work we plan.

You may also be able to fund your case with legal aid or legal expenses insurance. We’ll discuss all your options before we start.
