Lisa Banks Publishes 2017 Update of CFTC Whistleblower Practice Guide

Katz, Marshall & Banks partner Lisa Banks has published an updated edition of the CFTC Whistleblower Practice Guide. The guide provides an in-depth look at the legal protections afforded to commodity futures whistleblowers and best practices for CFTC whistleblowers to prepare effective tips, cooperate with a CFTC investigation and claim a whistleblower award. Established by the Dodd-Frank Act, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's (CFTC) Whistleblower Program protects whistleblowers from retaliation and also provides them with incentives for reporting fraud among entities involved in commodity futures trading. Recently updated with the latest legal developments and information regarding the CFTC's FY2016 enforcement actions and awards, this guide provides readers with a comprehensive, up-to-date explanation of existing law and valuable insights for CFTC whistleblowers and their counsel.
