Insider Trading and the Life Sciences – Recent Developments and Potential Pitfalls for Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, and Life Sciences Companies

Please join our distinguished panel to review recent developments in insider trading law, including changes to SEC rules and emerging trends in SEC enforcement practices. This panel will focus on the impact these developments may have on those operating in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and life sciences spaces – areas of continuous regulatory scrutiny that regularly account for a highly disproportionate amount of the SEC’s insider trading cases. Learn how these changes could impact your business, its employees, and employees’ families and friends. Topics for discussion will include:

  • Enforcement trends in insider trading, including investigation scope involving friends and family of corporate personnel;
  • Changes to the SEC’s rules regulating employee trading plans, and how those changes have increased potential liability of individuals and companies alike; and
  • A look at shadow insider trading cases involving the purchase and sale of stock of competing companies, suppliers and other industry participants based on information learned on the job at the current company.
