If you have answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to look for an SEC whistleblower lawyer NY residents, and residents of other States, like you can trust to help you navigate the SEC whistleblower award program.  Established in 2010, the SEC whistleblower reward program provides incentives and protection for individuals to come forward and report information about corporate fraud and other securities violations to the SEC.  Under this award program, assuming all of the other requirements are met, if someone voluntarily provides information about a fraud or other violation to the SEC, and the SEC brings a successful action based in part or in whole on that information, in which it collects more than $1 million, the SEC is required to give the eligible whistleblower(s) a monetary award of between 10% - 30% of the amount collected.

Having a lawyer on your side at every step of the SEC whistleblower process is important.  They can help you determine if your information may qualify you to be a part of the whistleblower program.  Then, your attorney can present your information for you effectively, guiding you through the process and interacting with the SEC lawyers and staff on your behalf. If the SEC is able to make successful action against the company or individuals with the help of your information, an SEC whistleblower lawyer can file your claim for an award, and work with the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower to ensure that you receive the monetary reward you are entitled to.  Real experience representing whistleblowers and other individuals before the SEC, intelligence, a first-hand understanding of the SEC whistleblower program, willingness to communicate with you, and sensitivity to your needs and concerns, are some things you may want to look for as you interview any SEC whistleblower lawyer NY residents, friends, family members, or colleagues recommend to you.
