New Regulations for Derivatives Market

Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP

(May 17) The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has announced new regulations on derivatives trading. The failure of the derivatives market was a key cause of the 2008 economic crisis and many investor advocates have called for new oversight and transparency in this $700 trillion (yes, $700 trillion) market, 90% of it controlled by only five major banks. Those advocates are likely to be disappointed by the compromises in the new regime, which legitimizes the power of those five banks, even while it brings previously-secretive trades into a regulated and far more visible trading platform.

Client Reviews

Thank you for your most kind and efficient treatment during my dilemma.


Darlene was so helpful in this matter, I had been trying for months to get help and she came through for me . . . I would recommend her in a heartbeat.


From the first time I spoke with her about my lawsuit, to the successful conclusion, Darlene was always the support I needed.


You folks put on an excellent case and we were, to say the least, extremely nervous about the outcome.
