Yes - please don't be like some partners at some companies... Any consulting firm have their own stock ownership policy (or whatever name it is). Sometimes they have a formal one, sometimes it's just talked. Regardless of that, any employee may follow the SEC rules regarding "non-public information". If you worked in a project for company X and you buy stock from company X, it will raise questions and you better be well prepared to prove it wasn't that NPI that madeyou buy it

P.s.: SEC (or the equivalent in your country) generally looks for profitable traded that did not follow the buyer profile*, or very large trades even if it didn't raise any flag. *Each person who once traded anything in the stock exchange has their profile - if you only buy blue chips for 10k a year and suddenly you buy 1MM on a no-name stock who went +30%, that will raise a huge flag
