Increased Public and Private Scrutiny of High-Frequency Trading

14 May 2014
Mayer Brown Legal Update
Trading firms, brokers, and exchanges engaged in high-frequency trading (HFT) activity are coming under increasing pressure in the United States from private litigants, securities regulators and criminal law enforcement authorities. As HFT techniques are increasingly used in non-US markets, the strategies and tactics used by private litigants and regulators in the United States may soon be exported outside of the United States as well. All financial services firms that participate in HFT activity will also need experienced counsel to help them respond to increased regulatory inquires and potential private litigation arising from HFT.
