Republican CFTC Member Scott O'Malia Steps Down


“Commissioner O’Malia has been a strong proponent of cost-benefit analysis in CFTC rulemaking, which has been an important consideration as the CFTC and other agencies work to implement the Dodd-Frank regulatory mandates,” Scott Kimpel tells Law360. Kimpel’s practice encompasses a range of matters involving securities laws, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, financings, and corporate governance. He previously served as counsel to a former SEC commissioner.
