Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, leads the most aggressive and successful criminal prosecutors office in the United States specialising in white collar crimes. He has led the insider trading prosecutions of Raj Rajaratnam, the head of a major hedge fund, and Rajat Gupta, former head of McKinsey and Company, and has never lost a criminal insider trading prosecution.
