Analysis of Market Manipulation
Defense Against Allegations of Market Manipulation

Brattle assists clients with defending against government investigations and enforcement actions based on allegedly manipulative behavior. We enable clients and their counsel to quickly assess whether such actions are groundless or have merit and can assist with deposition preparation and discovery. If potentially manipulative behavior is found, we assist in determining the optimal posture for settlement such that exposure to civil penalties, damages, and potential criminal liability is minimized. Should litigation arise, our staff and experts assist counsel by developing logically-consistent economic analyses to complement and strengthen the legal arguments made, and by providing the expert testimony and litigation support required to strengthen the client’s defense.
