Protecting SEC and CFTC Whistleblowers' Rights
In the aftermath of the global market collapse, the regulations governing publicly traded companies have undergone significant changes. Among those changes are certain incentives and protections afforded to individuals who report to the SEC and CFTC various deeds of misconduct, including suspected accounting fraud, corporate fraud, market manipulation, insider trading, stock broker fraud, and other serious offenses. Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, people who report such abuses are protected as whistleblowers who may be entitled to a payment of between 10 to 30 percent of any sanctions in excess of $1 million levied by the SEC in cases brought with "original information" provided the whistleblower.
Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience in SEC related matters, handling numerous sophisticated securities and accounting fraud litigations and arbitrations. We are at the forefront of the new SEC and CFTC whistleblower regulations, teaching others in the field about the details of those changes, and submitting numerous tips to the SEC and CFTC.
