In this week’s episode, Matt Kluchenek and Glen Kopp discuss sentencings in white collar cases. They specifically address commodities fraud and spoofing cases involving cooperators who have assisted the government and how cooperator sentences compare to those for defendants who are sentenced following a trial conviction. They share their insights on the approach of the Department of Justice (DOJ) in these cases and how defense attorneys advocate for clients at sentencing in fraud cases.

At the Crossroads: CFTC and DOJ Enforcement is a video weekly series hosted by Matt and Glen. Each episode, they discuss a topic at the intersection of enforcement by the CFTC and the DOJ. The goal: to help legal and compliance departments protect their organizations in an increasingly rigorous regulatory environment.
