Gregory S.


Greg Kaufman defends clients in government investigations, enforcement and litigation matters, with particular experience in energy and commodities enforcement matters. His success in representing individuals and companies flows from having a deep understanding of his clients’ businesses and the physical and financial markets in which they operate. He also advises energy and securities industry clients on regulatory developments such as the Dodd-Frank Act, compliance and operational risk issues, and internal investigations.

Greg’s clients include U.S. and international energy and commodities companies, hedge funds, insurance companies, exchange-traded funds, brokerage firms, business development companies and investment banks. He has represented companies and individuals in litigation and enforcement activities involving the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Commodity Exchanges, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Department of Justice. Investigative matters include representing energy clients in CFTC and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) market manipulation investigations of the crude oil and natural gas markets.
