This work is a multidisciplinary analysis of the issue of insider dealing from the perspective of the applicability of criminal law to regulate it. First, it examines the nature of its prohibition in the European Union and in the United States of America. The text includes a more extensive overview of prohibition in four Member States of the European Union (France, the United Kingdom, Luxembourg and Poland). Then, it summarises the arguments presented by ethicists and economists in favour of and against insider dealing. Further, it analyses the foundations of criminal law and justifications that are given for its application. On the basis of this analysis, it presents a new two-step theory of criminalisation. The first step is based on a liberal theory of wrongfulness that makes reference to protection of the basic human rights. The second step relies on classical but often forgotten principles of criminal law. Finally, it examines possible alternatives to criminal rules.

Since the Financial Crisis of 2008, criminal prosecution has moved to centre-stage as the Financial Conduct Authority’s preferred means of punishing and deterring insider dealing (the illegal practice of trading with access to sensitive non-public information). The Little Book of Insider Dealing looks at all aspects of the ‘insider’ offences established by the Criminal Justice Act 1993, including their history, punishment and rationale, as well as their (slightly uneasy) relationship with the overlapping civil regulatory regime that also governs such financial misconduct. Topics covered also include: detection, compliance, surveillance, suspicion, reporting obligations, enforcement and (civil and criminal) penalties and warnings, plus there is a strong focus on evidential aspects and a wealth of examples from real life cases. Suitable for beginners and practitioners alike. The first concise treatment and highly topical. A gem that deals with wide scale problems and complexities identified by an article in The Times (see Chapter 1).
