Largest Insider-Trading Case Calued at $276M

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

(November 23) What is apparently the largest insider-trading case in history has been filed by the Manhattan office of U.S.

Attorney Preet Bahrara against a former portfolio manager for Steven A. Cohen’s well-known SAC Capital Advisors LP. The criminal complaint charges Mathew Martoma of trading on inside information of disappointing Alzheimer’s drug trials, and coming away with $276 million of profits and avoided losses. The case was referred to state and federal prosecutors in 2008 by the New York Stock Exchange Division of Market Regulation on the analysis of suspicious trading patterns. That organization is now part of FINRA. The contents of the complaint suggest that the high-profile Cohen may also be implicated.

Client Reviews

Thank you for your most kind and efficient treatment during my dilemma.


Darlene was so helpful in this matter, I had been trying for months to get help and she came through for me . . . I would recommend her in a heartbeat.


From the first time I spoke with her about my lawsuit, to the successful conclusion, Darlene was always the support I needed.


You folks put on an excellent case and we were, to say the least, extremely nervous about the outcome.
