CFTC Targets Foreign Corrupt Practices

March 12, 2019, Law.com

Laura Brookover spoke with Law.com regarding Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s announcement that it will be on the lookout for bribery intended to secure business related to trading, advising, or dealing in swaps or derivatives. Ms. Brookover says, “We’ve already seen that this director is keen to work with other agencies and coordinate with other agencies to really boost the CFTC’s own enforcement efforts. The prime example of that is the spoofing industry sweep that the CFTC and DOJ coordinated last year. Both the CFTC and DOJ at the same time brought parallel spoofing charges against the same traders for overlapping conduct.” She adds, “It suggests the CFTC and DOJ at least are communicating and keeping abreast of developments in their enforcement programs."
