  • 1. JOE TACOPINA ON THE MEDIA AND INSIDER TRADING By Joe Tacopina
  • 2. Introduction  The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has prioritized the prevention of insider trading in U.S. securities markets since the Great Depression. The subject is of relevance to the general public, who receive the bulk of their information from media reports. Experts like Manhattan attorney Joe Tacopina, a criminal defense lawyer and partner with the Law Offices of Tacopina Seigel & Turano, PC, help to accurately disseminate information about insider trading to the public at large.
  • 3. About Insiders  A company's owners, directors, and management, as well as its lawyers and accountants, have routine access to information that is generally unavailable to the public. Such "insiders" can earn sums at the expense of uninformed traders, thus undermining public confidence in the securities markets.
  • 4. Conclusion  Joe Tacopina is one of several well-known and trusted experts who help the public better understand how insider trading occurs in real- life situations, such as the very public prosecution of Enron CEO Kenneth Lay and allegations against former Goldman Sachs Group Board Member Rajat Gupta.
