CFTC Enforcement Attorneys - Federal Lawyers
Have you recently been named as the object of a potential CFTC investigation? If so, the important thing is not to panic. You have legal rights that absolutely must be respected. One of your most cardinal rights is the ability to “lawyer up” with a skilled and experienced legal professional from our law firm.
What is the CFTC and What Does it Do?
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is set up to preserve transparency and fair trading practices for commodities. These commodities can be anything from precious metal to bitcoins. It has the power to punish any violations of the Commodity Exchange Act and all attendant CFTC regulations that may apply.
As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act, the power of the CFTC has been multiplied by an exponential margin. It now has the authority to punish convicted wrongdoers with heavy fines and prison time. This is not an agency to be toyed with.
How Can a Lawyer from Our Firm Help You?
If you believe that you are being investigated unfairly, there are constructive ways to respond. The best thing you can do under the circumstances is to hire a lawyer who knows how to deal with the CFTC.
Your lawyer can help you gather up all of the documentation and other evidence that you need to prove that you were never part of any illegal activities. They can present this evidence to the CFTC in order to help clear your name.
Your counsel can also arrange for an attorney proffer meeting. During this meeting, your lawyer will meet with the prosecutor in order to answer any questions and respond to any interest that they have in you. The point of this meeting is to convince the CFTC that you are innocent of any illegal activity or ethical wrongdoing.
If all else fails and you have to go to court, your lawyer will stand by you through every step of the process. The goal will be to get the charges against you dropped or, at the very least, reduced as far as possible. But you can only rely on this expert legal backing if you make the effort to get us involved.
