Market manipulation comes under the spotlight at international Rahman Ravelli webinar

Author: Syedur Rahman  11 December 2020

Posted in : Market Manipulation .

A panel of legal figures with worldwide expertise came together for a Rahman Ravelli-hosted webinar to assess recent criminal and civil regulatory developments regarding spoofing and other forms of market abuse.

The webinar, “Market Manipulation – Legal Developments and Defence Strategies”, was held on December 9 and attracted an international audience of financial traders and legal experts. It analysed the significance of certain cases and examined the approaches taken by agencies, including the United States’ Securities and Exchange Commission and Department of Justice and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority.

Enforcement regimes in the US, UK and European Union (EU) and the activities of market regulators were all considered in detail. The evolution of spoofing prosecutions, how such investigations progress and the challenges facing defendants in such cases were also the focus of the panel.

The panel dissected the British regulatory approach and market manipulation in the EU. It also discussed whether any changes can be expected when Joe Biden becomes President of the US.
The webinar panel was chaired by barrister Sasha Wass QC. The panel members were Nathan Muyskens, partner at Greenberg Traurig and co-chair of the Global White Collar Criminal Defense Practice; Barry Vitou, partner at Greenberg Traurig; Emre Carr, senior managing director at FTI Consulting.
