Lubatan Suchatow is one of the few law firms in the U.S. that work specifically as a whistleblower advocate. The firm’s Whistleblower Representation Practice helps individuals report wrongdoings to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) in a private and confidential environment.
In the past, many people were afraid to come forward out of fear of reprisals. The passing of the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 has given whistleblowers to cover to report securities violations without having to worry about losing their job or being subjected to harassment of any kind.
In response to the massive fraud and violations during the banking crisis of 2008, the Dodd-Frank Act implemented some of the most sweeping banking overhauls in history. Along with basic whistleblower protection, it also offers financial incentives for individuals when the sanctions are in excess of $1 million. Whistleblowers may also be entitled to additional funds through other law enforcement entities under certain rules.
Lubatan Suchatow’s Whistleblower Representation Practice is run by Thomas A. Jordan, a former SEC chief counsel, who was responsible for implementing rules and regulations at the SEC. “Thomas was a tremendous leader during his tenure at the SEC. He was the logical choice to run our program,” said a source.
