The introduction of the Dodd-Frank Act by the U.S. Congress led to sweeping changes taking place to the way the financial markets are regulated in North America. Labaton Sucharow has led the way with the introduction of a specialized team dedicated to providing help and assistance to those looking to enter the SEC whistleblower program, which has been created by one of the author’s of the Dodd-Frank Act, Jordan A. Thomas; under the leadership of Thomas, Labaton Sucharow has created one of the top teams in the financial industry for protecting whistleblowers.
Labaton Sucharow has built an impressive team of the top financial and legal minds with experience in the financial industry who are skilled in fighting for the rights of individual whistleblowers. The first step in beginning the process of entering the whistleblower program is to undertake a review of the available evidence a whistleblower has at hand about financial irregularities in a specific area of the financial industry. This, and every aspect of entering the SEC whistleblower program is confidential and anonymous, with only those heading the program having knowledge of the name and position of the individual whistleblower.
An initial investigation is undertaken by the specialist team at Labaton Sucharow that is designed to make sure each individual case has the best possible chance of success; Jordan A. Thomas’ team will look to bring the case to the SEC only after a complete evaluation and investigation has been undertaken to make sure every area of the possible whistleblower case has been investigated. Once the case is presented to the SEC every precaution will be taken to make sure the anonymity of the individual is preserved throughout the process to keep them safe from victimization in their work environment.
One of the main changes made to the financial whistleblower rules made by the Dodd-Frank Act has been the awarding of financial rewards based on fines levied because of the information provided by the whistleblower. To make sure every SEC whistleblower has every reason to bring their evidence to the SEC a reward of between 10 and 30 percent of all fines over $1 million levied by the SEC; Labaton Sucharow fights on behalf of their clients to make sure they get the highest possible SEC whistleblower program reward for the risks they take.
