Insider Trading Expert Witnesses
Insider trading expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in securities law, economic analysis, forensic accounting, and may be certified fraud examiners. 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.
Representative insider trading case disputes that call for an expert involve issues pertaining to:
- Securities fraud
- Hedge fund
- Fiduciary duty

Litigation support by an insider trading expert witness could represent either the plaintiff or defendant, and work could include a case review and investigation, arbitration, expert opinion, an expert report, and/or expert testimony in the courtroom.
