CFTC Investigation Enforcement Attorneys - Federal Lawyers
What is the CFTC and What Do They Do?
CFTC stands for Commodity Futures Trading Commission. They are the Federal body that has been set up to oversee and enforce fair and transparent dealing on the commodities market.
Their range of authority extends to futures and options markets, derivates related to commodities, and all other products that are officially subject to the Commodity Exchange Act. The power of this Commission has been significantly expanded thanks to the passage of the Dodd-Frank act.
CFTC is not a body to be trifled with. They have the power, and have used it in the past, to enforce severe penalties that are designed to punish offenders. If you are named as the object of an official investigation, you need to lawyer up.
Only a Skilled Lawyer Can Protect You from the CFTC
Because the CFTC takes its mission so seriously, they will always be inclined to deal harshly with those whom they see as offenders. This means that they will tend to take a “guilty until proven innocent” approach when speaking to people whom they are considering an investigation into.
For this reason, you will need to convince them that you don’t know anything or, at least, anything worth telling to them. Your lawyer can arrange an attorney proffer meeting during which they can convey this message to them.
The sooner you let them know that you are willing to cooperate but that you don’t have anything useful to say, the sooner you can get off the hook. You will need a lawyer with experience in this area to pull this off.
Even if you have to go to court, your lawyer will still work hard on your behalf. The goal in this case will be to eliminate any perception of your responsibility for illegal acts. Your lawyer can help to take the heat off you.
