As explained by Thomson Reuters on its website, the book “provides a thorough review of the application of the securities laws and other criminal statutes in prosecutions, along with an in-depth consideration of how the law is applied in civil enforcement proceedings.”

One of the subjects featured in the book is the SEC whistleblower program.

  • the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Digital Realty Trust v. Somers (2018) regarding private anti-retaliation protections under the Dodd-Frank Act;
  • SEC whistleblower confidentiality;
  • the SEC’s “form and manner” requirements for submitting information;
  • the SEC Form TCR;
  • what constitutes “original information” under the SEC whistleblower rules;
  • publicly-available information;
