The Law & Compliance Division monitors legal and regulatory developments affecting the futures and derivatives industry, assisting FIA in providing information to help relevant regulators and courts make decisions that affect the futures exchanges community. The Division discusses issues with U.S. and International regulators and exchanges and prepares comment letters, position papers, and court briefs when appropriate.
Division members address industry issues through conferences, meetings and monthly luncheons in Chicago and New York. Each spring the Division sponsors a three-day premier conference – the “Law & Compliance Division Conference on the Regulation of Futures, Derivatives, and OTC Products” – which attracts more than 800 industry participants to discuss current legal and compliance issues and network with their colleagues.
