The story of a friendship that started in law school and ended with the largest insider trading scandal in Canadian history, this eye-opening chronicle reveals for the first time how Gil Cornblum and Stan Grmovsek worked together to rip off Wall Street and Bay Street?the Canadian Wall Street equivalent?for over $10 million. Cornblum would scout around his law offices in the middle of the night, looking for confidential information on mergers or takeovers. When he found something, he would tip off Grmovsek, who would make the stock market trades that would gain them illegal profits. From the joint internal investigation by the Ontario Securities Commission, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Integrated Market Enforcement Team to Cornblum?s resultant suicide and Grmovsek?s 39-month prison sentence, Tip and Trade covers the discovery of the double lives of the twosome and their inevitable downfall. First-person interviews, conducted with Grmovsek from prison, give insight into what case prosecutors called a classic ?Hollywood? insider trading history.

"It was a scamming partnership that lasted 14 years before the inevitable crash. Coakley's riveting tale includes interviews, trial accounts and his own brand of insider knowledge."
