White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses

The brief overview: In White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses, Otto G. Obermaier, Robert G. Morvillo, Robert J. Anello, and Barry Bohrer have gathered a prestigious group of authors to counsel you on: criminal tax cases; securities fraud; RICO; mail and wire fraud; banking crimes; criminal antitrust actions; bribery and extortion; conspiracy; entrapment and government overreaching; government contract fraud; grand jury practice; perjury and false declarations; and general principles governing the criminal liability of corporations, their employees and officers.

White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses also features a discussion of computer crime, including provisions of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the creation of Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Squads designed to combat copyright theft, computer fraud and hacking. There is also valuable information on forfeiture; the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act; and the Supreme Court's interpretation of the standard of “gross proportionality” as it applies to violations of the Eighth Amendment's “excessive fines” clause.

Because the crime of "insider trading" is not expressly defined by any statute but relies instead on judicial interpretations of certain broad provisions of the securities laws, understanding the law of insider trading requires a close analysis of the relevant statutes and rules as well as of the decisions of multiple courts in both the criminal and civil contexts. Release 54 for White Collar Crime: Business and Regulatory Offenses introduces a new chapter by Robert J. Anello and Brian A. Jacobs that examines the underlying law, including the Supreme Court’s 2016 decision in United States v. Salman, civil insider trading liability, civil and criminal penalties, the private right of action, and pending insider trading legislation.
