Personal Information


Gregory Scopino is a Special Counsel with the Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight (DSIO) at the headquarters of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in Washington, D.C., where he helps the Division provide interpretative guidance on Commission Regulations to market participants and assists with rulemakings necessitated by the Dodd-Frank Act. He previously worked in the CFTC’s Enforcement Division, in which capacity he civilly prosecuted cases across the country that involved fraud or manipulative trading practices in the financial markets for derivatives.

Before joining the CFTC, he was a litigator at private firms in New York, first with Cravath, Swaine & Moore and then with Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler. While working at law firms, his practice focused on securities and antitrust litigation, as well as civil and criminal appellate work.

Mr. Scopino's research interests include financial regulation, antitrust, corporations (including organizational culture and norms as they relate to regulatory compliance) and administrative law. More specifically, his research seeks to analyze how the law operates at the intersection(s) of two (or more) legal or regulatory paradigms, and how regulatory initiatives operate and adapt to changes in the behavior of regulated entities brought on by, inter alia, advances in technology.

He has written about financial regulations promulgated pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Act and the regulation of automated and high-frequency trading in the futures and derivative markets. He has articles forthcoming in the Connecticut Law Review, Florida Law Review, and Nebraska Law Review.
