Whistleblower Claims Litigation Service


Under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s whistleblower program, whistleblowers who provide original information to the SEC about violations of federal securities law are eligible to receive an award of 10 to 30 percent of the money collected when the information leads to monetary sanctions of $1 million or more. In order to encourage individuals with knowledge of wrongdoing to come forward and expose the wrongdoers, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) provides civil and criminal protections for whistleblowers. The enactment of SOX by Congress in 2002 was in large part due to the exposure of incidents of significant corporate corruption and calamitous bankruptcies.

“[Their] efforts over approximately six years to not only obtain a large recovery where it originally appeared impossible, but to provide the SEC and prosecutors with the information they needed to successfully prosecute the wrongdoers, required creativity, tenacity, and resourcefulness,” one client says. “I am deeply grateful for their efforts, and the outcome could not have been more satisfying.”
