Helping Individuals Get Compensation and Protection from Retaliation When Reporting SEC Fraud

With extensive experience representing whistleblowers and a reputation for success, our law firm is the ideal choice for those considering participating in the SEC whistleblower program.
About the SEC Whistleblower Program
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) whistleblower program was established in 2010 under the Dodd-Frank Act. This program encourages individuals with knowledge of possible violations of federal securities laws to share that information with the SEC. In return, whistleblowers may be eligible for monetary awards if their information leads to a successful enforcement action by the SEC and related actions by other agencies.
The Office of the Whistleblower within the SEC oversees the program, evaluating whistleblower claims and coordinating with the Enforcement Division and other divisions on these matters. The office is dedicated to ensuring that whistleblowers are protected from retaliation and that their identities remain confidential throughout the process.

Our attorneys can advise you on the anti-retaliation provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act and represent you if you experience any retaliation from your employer for your whistleblower activities.
