Mobileye Insider Trading Investigation: Our Firm Represented Former Syneron VP in Settlement with SEC

On April 17, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission dropped its case against our client Amir Waldman.

Waldman, the former vice president of Israel-based medical device company Syneron Medical Ltd., was alleged to have made $4.3 million via insider trading on an autonomous driving system technology developer. He will pay the SEC nearly $2.2 million to end a civil enforcement lawsuit, a New York federal district judge announced Friday.

Zvi Gabbay commented on the decision as follows: "As in many cases, here too, a negotiation was being conducted at the same as we were preparing for trial, and it ultimately ended with an excellent result. This is a civil not a criminal case, and the arrangement, under which Amir does not admit or deny the facts, allows Amir to move on."
