SEC Whistle Blower Lawyer
Some Things That An SEC Whistle Blower Lawyer Can Do For You
If you believe that you are in possession of information related to wrongdoing by a U.S. public company, broker-dealer, or securities firm, then you may be a potential SEC whistleblower. To understand more about the SEC whistleblower program and if you qualify, you may want to seek the assistance of an SEC whistle blower lawyer.
If so, you should seek out an attorney who has previous experience dealing with SEC whistleblower cases and who understands the requirements and procedures associated with being an SEC whistleblower. Finding an SEC whistle blower lawyer who has real experience with the SEC whistleblower program, versus hiring a lawyer with just securities or plaintiffs experience, is important because there are processes and rules specifically related to theSEC whistleblower program that are unique from other forms of legal or regulatory situations. Additionally, the SEC has its own particular culture, which differs from that at other government agencies.
There are also other ways in which an SEC whistle blower lawyer can assist you. For example, the SEC makes protecting the identity of its whistleblowers a priority, but in order to keep your identity anonymous, unknown even to the SEC, the Commission’s rules require you to be represented by an SEC whistleblower attorney.
An SEC whistleblower lawyer can provide professional value by drafting your written complaint to the SEC for you; responding to inquiries by the SEC’s Staff; supporting you through conferences or other communications with the SEC; composing the written submission required to claim an SEC whistleblower reward after the SEC’s investigation and case have been completed; and possibly filing an appeal to the Commission if the SEC’s Staff initially denies you an award.
