Haima Marlier, David Newman, and Haydn Forrest authored an article for Law360 discussing the increased scrutiny related to insider trading in the time of the coronavirus outbreak, analyzing the investigation into Senator Richard Burr’s stock transactions as a cautionary tale, and providing steps companies can take to mitigate such risks.

“Companies should think critically about how to mitigate the risk that any employee – from C-suite insiders with access to detailed financial records to inventory clerks who notice an essential input hasn’t arrived in weeks – finds themselves ensnared in an insider trading investigation,” the authors wrote.

Haydn is a Morrison & Foerster LLP associate admitted to practice in the state of Texas. He contributed to this article and his practice is supervised by principals of the firm admitted in the District of Columbia.
