Successful defense of stock trader charged by the U.S. Department of Justice with federal crimes and sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for multi-million dollar penny stock pump-and-dump scheme. McKay Chadwell quickly interfaced with the SEC and federal prosecutors to protect the trader’s constitutional rights and mount a defense through analysis of thousands of pages of complex, raw trading data. After a diligent defense investigation, the firm negotiated a favorable disposition for the client in the criminal matter while preventing the SEC from obtaining a double recovery in the parallel civil lawsuit.
