Effective Legal Representation for Whistleblower Clients

Under many whistleblower laws, those who report certain misconduct to state and federal authorities are eligible for multi-million dollar awards based on the fines and damages collected by these authorities following their disclosures. Many of these awards are based on the robust whistleblower programs adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

Those programs also include significant protections so that whistleblowers who retain counsel like me can maintain their anonymity while still being able to enjoy the financial rewards of a good whistleblower tip. The firm counsels and submits tips and claims for a large variety of whistleblowers, particularly whistleblowers on Wall Street and at leading financial firms around the world, from analysts to traders, bankers, managers, and even compliance personnel. I also have represented other people who possess or have developed credible information about violations, including investors, short sellers, sales agents, and other observers of misconduct.

The subject matter of whistleblower tips may include the following, and more:

  • Corporate fraud
  • Compliance failures and other inadequacies in compliance programs
  • Misleading earnings projections and other misleading statements
  • Accounting fraud
  • Improper conduct by analysts
  • Improper trading
  • Channel Stuffing
  • Stockbroker and brokerage fraud
  • Market manipulation
  • Insider trading

Is A Whistleblower’s Identity Protected by Law?

Are you a whistleblower and not sure if you are protected from retaliation from your former employer? The Whistleblower Protection Act protects all federal employees who report any fraudulent government activities. Public and private employees are protected under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, but there are certain limitations.

Private sector employees are excluded from the act and are not protected. There are also no legal protections for employees of labor unions who report corruption, they can also be terminated if they raise any allegations.

CFTC and SEC Whistleblowing

I have represented numerous clients in submitting dozens of securities industry tips to the SEC and CFTC and whose information and analysis uncovered major corporate wrongdoing at some of the world’s largest financial firms.

I also represent whistleblowers who file qui tam claims under the Federal False Claims Act and other similar laws involving:

  • Tax fraud or the underpayment of taxes
  • Healthcare fraud, including Medicare and Medicaid fraud
  • Military spending fraud committed by defense contractors
  • Fraud or misconduct related to other government spending or programs

What is a SEC Violation?

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigations are conducted in private. The evidence that is presented is informal inquiry, interviewing witnesses, going through records and trading data. Common violations that may possibly lead to a SEC investigation include the following:

  • Withholding importation security information

  • Embezzlement of customer’s funds or information

  • Treating customers unfairly and violating dealers’ responsibility

  • Trading non-public information

  • Selling unregistered securities
