Financial Fraud & Market Manipulation Defense

We represent global financial institutions and service providers, private equity and other investment funds, as well as individuals against the full spectrum of financial fraud and market manipulation investigations and charges. 

As financial regulations and enforcement priorities continually evolve, Latham remains on the front lines of financial fraud and market manipulation defense. Teaming with Latham’s global financial regulatory practice, we help clients see around every corner and anticipate emerging liability risks.

Drawing on the experience of a robust roster of former US Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors and senior Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) officials, we help clients skillfully navigate financial fraud and market manipulation investigations and establish strong compliance measures within their organizations. Our team advises on the full range of matters, from accounting irregularities, insider trading and spoofing to cutting-edge claims involving cryptocurrencies and digital assets. We routinely represent clients facing investigations by the DOJ, CFTC and SEC, and the Department of Treasury, as well as UK, European, and Asian authorities and regulators.
