April 2, 2024

Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC has hired the acting director of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s whistleblower office, who brings more than two decades of experience working in related roles in public service to the platform.

Christina K. McGlosson joins Cohen Milstein as special counsel: Dodd-Frank whistleblower practice, after spending 10 months as acting director of that CFTC office, the firm announced Monday. She’ll be based in Cohen Milstein’s Washington, D.C., office, according to her firm profile. 

Serving as acting director was McGlosson’s second role with that agency, having previously served as associate director of the CFTC’s Division of Enforcement from 2017 to 2021, according to her LinkedIn profile. At the CFTC’s whistleblower office, McGlosson oversaw $42 million in awards to four whistleblowers in September and October of last year, the firm said.

“It’s really a great merge for me in a way, to leverage whistleblower, federal securities, SEC and even any commodities CFTC matters representing a whistleblower that would come in here,” McGlosson said. “I really thought it was a good synergy with what I can give and what they need.”
