Seminars: Market Misconduct – Latest developments

by on March 23, 2010

In response to the recent turmoil surrounding insider trading, as well as other misconduct by banks and law firms, regulators worldwide have begun to push for tougher prosecution of professionals engaged in market misconduct.  Hong Kong has demonstrated its desire to curb such activity using a number of tools, including freezing assets and implementing a more aggressive scheme to investigate alleged misconduct

On Thursday, 25th of March, 2010, Linklaters will be holding a lunch seminar to address the issue of market misconduct.  The discussion will focus on new methods for investigating, prosecuting and preventing  market misconduct in Hong Kong.  From the Linklaters press release, the seminar will cover:

  • a refresher on the forms of market misconduct in Hong Kong
  • latest trends in the SFC’s investigation methods
  • the use of criminal courts and recent penalty levels
  • how your internal procedures and approach to SFC investigations should adapt to these new developments.

From our cross-practice contentious regulatory team, Marc Harvey (Litigation Partner), Jelita Gardner-Rush (Litigation Managing Associate) and Kevin Marr (Financial Regulation Group Managing Associate).
