Paul Hinton and Pavitra Kumar Present at High-Frequency Trading Litigation Webinar

Brattle principal Paul Hinton and senior associate Pavitra Kumar recently presented in the webinar, “High-Frequency Trading Litigation in 2015,” hosted by The Knowledge Group on March 26, 2015.

This webcast discussed issues surrounding High-Frequency Trading (HFT), which in recent years has increased and become a focus of regulators. The Joint Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)-Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Advisory Committee has expressed concern over the volume of orders and cancellations of trades (spoofing), and the SEC, CFTC, and the FBI have all announced investigations of HFT practices. Panelists addressed how HFT will continue to create challenging analytical and legal issues involving its complexity and multi-party nature of trading, changing regulation, and new legal theories.

Dr. Kumar spoke on the “Key Areas of High-Frequency-Trading-Related Litigation and Related Economic Issues,” including exchange-related litigation, litigation against HFT firms, and market access litigation. Mr. Hinton spoke on the latest issues surrounding HFT litigation in light of the continued scrutiny by regulators placed on financial firms.
