Matthew Nielsen, a government enforcement and investigations partner in the firm’s Dallas office, spoke with the Washington Post about allegations that Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), committed insider trading.

“This comes down to . . . whether there was specific, classified information that would have been something unavailable to the public, that led someone to conclude that there was going to be significantly more impact, said Nielsen.
