May 13, 2019

On May 8, the CFTC released its first publicly available Manual, intended as a general reference for the Enforcement Staff, and to provide the public with more clarity and transparency into the CFTC’s process and governing principles. Although much of the substance of the Manual was already in place through rules, regulations or as a matter of practice, having it formalized in one document is new, as are some of the provisions in the Manual.  

 In this client alert, RK&O partners Shari A. Brandt, Paul J. Devlin and Lee S. Richards III outline the key highlights of the new Manual and address some of the questions that still remain.
