Each year the financial markets are examined for their adherence to the rules and regulations created by the U.S. Congress and administered by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Following the 2008 economic slowdown the Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act that was in part designed to make sure the highest level of progtections and rewards ever introduced were made available to whistleblowers who would bring evidence of the activities of individuals and companies mismanaging finances in the U.S.
The Dodd-Frank Act was passed into law with one of the authors, Jordan Thomas, heading to private practice with the Labaton Sucharow law firm where he assembled the first specialist department devoted to the development of SEC whistleblower activities. Thomas has been an outspoken supporter of the program and has used his position as an SEC whistleblower attorney to explain his view that the best possible evidence for almost every case comes from whistleblowers; Thomas explained the growing levels of financial rewards given to SEC whistleblowers will only attract more financial experts to the program and protect consumers around the world from having their finances mishandled.
Jordan Thomas and his team at Labaton Sucharow have been at the front of the push for greater levels of financial rewards and better protections of the anonymity of the individual whistleblower that are already at an all time high; Thomas has worked on cases where a whistleblower has been unmasked and targeted by their employer in a bid to halt a case.
Recently, the SEC Whistleblower lawyer Jordan Thomas has worked on a number of high profile cases that include an individual receiving a record $17 million reward for the information brought to the SEC. Thomas and his team are looking to work with whistleblowers from the very first steps they take in bringing their case to the attention of the SEC; Thomas and his team at Labaton Sucharow have the skills to examine evidence and ensure a case can be brought by the SEC before the whistleblower steps forward and places their reputation on the line.
