Defending Against Allegations Of Crypto Insider Trading

Inside trading in cryptocurrencies has emerged as a point of focus for multiple U.S. law enforcement and regulatory agencies, including the Department of Justice (“DOJ”), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”). In 2022, the DOJ announced the first-ever guilty plea in a crypto insider trading case, establishing a possible framework for future prosecutions.

The regulatory environment for crypto currency is still very much in flux as the regulatory authorities adjust to emerging products, technologies and platforms. As a result, it may be difficult for traders, investors, platform designers and digital asset promotors to adequately plan for and anticipate regulatory oversight.  The attorneys at Ford O’Brien Landy LLP are fully informed about the regulatory landscape and thus are well positioned to advise clients on crypto regulatory compliance and white collar defense strategies.

Our law firm is already recognized worldwide for securing favorable results in digital asset litigation. With offices in New York City and Austin, Texas, Ford O’Brien Landy LLP stands ready to assist individuals, trading platforms and others who are active in the crypto space when allegations of insider trading arise.
