In commodity markets, raw or primary products are traded on regulated exchanges. A commodity can itself be traded in a market, or can serve as the basis for futures or other options contracts. When true and accurate information exists in the market, then buyers and sellers of commodities and associated options contracts receive a true and accurate price on the exchange. However, when information is manipulated or fraudulent, then buyers and sellers are trading on false prices and often sustain unfair losses.
Finkelstein Thompson LLP has served and continues to serve as co-lead counsel in cutting edge commodities market manipulation litigation, representing companies that trade both primary products and options. Our firm has pursued significant market players and obtained some of the largest recoveries for our clients in the history of the Commodities Exchange Act.
