No matter how long you have been in your particular field, it was probably unsettling when you uncovered evidence of securities violations or corporate fraud. You may have been suspicious about certain activities for a while, or perhaps you stumbled upon the information without meaning to. And now you are left wondering where to go from here. If this situation sounds familiar, now is the time to turn to a NY SEC whistleblower lawyer for help.
The Securities and Exchange Commission depends upon whistleblowers like you to report evidence of securities violations and corporate fraud, to help bring the wrongdoers to justice, and to save more people from becoming victims. You are probably well aware how much harm corporate and securities frauds like insider trading, falsified books and records, accounting frauds, bribing foreign government officials to gain a business advantage, Ponzi schemes, and many crimes can do to otherwise innocent victims, their businesses, and their families. Although you may feel unsettled about the situation, it is important to recognize that you could make a positive impact in an otherwise negative situation by bringing the information you have to the SEC.
The SEC has established certain protections for individuals like you. Under the Dodd-Frank Act and the SEC’s Rules, the SEC is required to keep your identity confidential. When you have an NY SEC whistleblower lawyer on your side, you have the option to remain anonymous, so that even the SEC does not know your identity, for most of the process. Furthermore, both the Dodd-Frank Act and the SEC’s Rules prohibit your employer from retaliating against you for providing the information you have to the SEC.
Your NY SEC whistleblower lawyer can help you to become an SEC whistleblower, present your information to the SEC effectively, and help you interact and communicate with the SEC while it is investigates the wrongdoing. According to the Dodd-Frank of 2010, assuming that all other criteria are met, if the SEC brings a successful action based on the information that a whistleblower(s) like you provided, and the SEC wins or obtains over $1 million in that action, the SEC is required to give the whistleblower(s) an award totalling between 10% – 30% of the amount that it collects.
