Argus Oil Market Regulation Summit 2009
Sutherland attorney Gregory S. Kaufman is speaking at the Argus Oil Market Regulation Summit 2009 on October 21, 2009, in Houston, Texas. Greg is presenting "FTC - Defining new market authority."
The presentation will include:
How does the FTC define the key concepts of manipulation such as distortion of markets, material fact, and omission?
What is the distinction between the "knowingly engage" standard and the existing standards of "recklessness" and "specific intent"? Could there be conflict should these standards be applied to the same situation?
How far will the FTC rulemaking reach? What are the possible extensions of the "in connection with" language into futures markets, pipelines, and refinery operations? What are implications for regulator overlap?
What kind of conduct could violate this market manipulation rule, and what are possible enforcement scenarios?
Sutherland is also a proud sponsor of this conference, which will drill into key issues, including policy updates on key CFTC and FTC regulatory initiatives; perspectives on how these regulations might impact oil markets; the realities of enforcement: what should oil market participants expect; navigating the jurisdictional overlap between CFTC, FTC and FERC; and currently accepted models for energy trading compliance programs.
