    Competition Enforcement Role of the CFTC

    11:30 AM EDT

Panelists will discuss the origins of the CFTC’s antitrust mandate, whether the CFTC is likely to continue to take a leading role in competition issues in financial markets, and what the implications may be for firms, their internal counsel, and external counsel.
