An insider trading expert witness typically has extensive experience in securities law, economic analysis, forensic accounting, and/or is a certified fraud examiner. While many professionals have expertise in insider trading issues, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby a judge and juror can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
Illegal insider trading occurs when a securities transaction is influenced by material, non public information that only a few individuals inside of a company, whose stocks are being traded, would know about. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is responsible for monitoring these kinds of transactions.
