Competition Enforcement Role of the CFTC
11:30 AM EDT
In LIBOR and FX, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") has played a leading role among U.S. regulators in investigating claims of anticompetitive behavior and in negotiating settlements with U.S. and foreign financial institutions. 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.
