Expert Witness Services

In today’s complex litigation, the need for a financial or regulatory expert is becoming increasingly more frequent. Former CFTC Senior Trial Attorney Braden Perry has been retained as an expert witness in the area of commodity, futures, derivatives,  and securities regulation.

Mr. Perry has the unique tripartite experience of a white collar criminal defense and government compliance, investigations, and litigation attorney at a national law firm; a senior enforcement attorney at a federal regulatory agency; and the Chief Compliance Officer/Chief Regulatory Attorney of a global financial institution. He has extensive experience advising clients in federal inquiries and investigations, particularly in enforcement matters involving technological issues. Mr. Perry couples his technical knowledge and experience defending clients in front of federal agencies with a broad-based understanding of compliance from an institutional and regulatory perspective and provides clear opinions in areas of compliance and enforcement.

Most recently, Mr. Perry was an expert witness for a CFTC violation legal analysis in the Evan Dooly/MF Global Actions, New Hampshire Insurance Company, et al., v. MF Global, Inc., Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York, Index No. 09601621, on behalf of Plaintiffs New Hampshire Insurance Company, Vigilant Insurance Company, Certain Underwriters of Lloyds of London Subscribing to Certificate No. B0576MMU280, St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Company, Fidelity & Deposit Company of Maryland, Continental Casualty Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, Great American Insurance Company, and Axis Reinsurance Company.
