Webinar: Defending Insider Dealing (Re-run)
Event Code : 20221010


When will a piece of information become “inside information”? Is “inside information” necessarily “price sensitive” information? What are the legal implications for those who are in possession of such information? What should they do and what should they not do? What are the pitfalls? Would it make any difference if the person in possession of the inside information is or is not connected to the corporation? When will a dealing amount to “insider dealing”? What are the possible defences for insider dealing?

This seminar will address these questions as well as the implications of some recent cases in which the defendants’ defence to a charge of insider dealing was accepted or rejected by the Market Misconduct Tribunal or the Court. All these cases will be reviewed and analyzed.
