The CFTC is very aggressive at enforcing commodity-related laws and regulations. The CFTC works closely with the US Attorney’s Office and the DOJ. If you are being investigated, it’s likely you might face criminal investigations as well. At Spodek Law Group, we are committed to providing quality representations, and pragmatic advice, to clients facing commodities trading offenses in the USA.
The CFTC, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, is a federal enforcement division that is charged with enforcing laws under the CEA – also known as the Commodity Exchange Act. The CFTC leads all investigations pertaining to illegal trades of commodities, futures, and swaps. It works off tips provided by the public, including individuals, and private businesses. What makes the CFTC dangerous to individuals and businesses is the fact it works VERY CLOSELY with federal, state, and foreign governments, in order to ensure the law is being enforced and illegal trades are punished.
What penalties can I face
If investigated by the CFTC, you could face a criminal investigation in addition to civil penalties. CFTC investigations can lead to both civil and criminal penalties. It means if you’re investigated, you need an experienced CFTC defense lawyer who can limit the scope of the investigation, and limit the effect of criminal charges. The administrative process in a commodities trading offense investigation can result in monetary penalties – such as: freezing your assets, order restitution, seizure of profits from illegal trades, and more. You could be suspended, restricted, or face complete revocation of your right to trade.
