Market Integrity and Major Frauds Unit

An Overview

The Market Integrity and Major Frauds (“MIMF”) Unit focuses on the prosecution of complex securities, commodities, cryptocurrency, and other financial fraud and market manipulation cases. Working in parallel with regulatory partners at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and other federal agencies, the MIMF Unit has tackled some of the largest fraud schemes in the financial services industry, as well as consumer fraud cases, bank fraud, federal program fraud, and government procurement fraud. The MIMF Unit also leads the Fraud Section’s efforts to combat COVID-related fraud, including Paycheck Protection Program and Economic Injury Disaster Loan schemes. Most of the Unit’s cases fall into four areas:

  • Securities and commodities fraud
  • Federal programs and procurement fraud
  • Consumer and investor fraud
  • Cryptocurrency fraud
