Mayer Brown

Authors:   Matthew F. Kluchenek  and  Glen A. Kopp

At the Crossroads: CFTC and DOJ Enforcement is a video weekly series hosted by Mayer Brown partners Matt Kluchenek and Glen Kopp. Each episode, they discuss a topic at the intersection of enforcement by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the US Department of Justice (DOJ). The goal: to help legal and compliance departments protect their organizations in an increasingly rigorous regulatory environment.

There has been an increase in cooperative enforcement activities by the CFTC and the DOJ.  Matt and Glen discuss a recent decision and explore the differences between “joint” vs. “parallel” investigations and the implications for defendants and their employers, as well as for the agencies.
