Should you blow the whistle?
Whistleblowers serve a vital role in the fight against corporate fraud – reporting information that may otherwise never come to light and standing up to corporate misconduct. While an honorable pursuit, whistleblowers often put their careers and reputations on the line in their efforts to end fraudulent conduct. Whistleblowers courageously report and resist corporate wrongdoing and deserve a trustworthy and skilled advocate to guide them through this process.
If you have information about a fraud and are considering becoming a whistleblower, the experienced, dedicated attorneys at Kahn, Swick, & Foti LLC can help you present your case to authorities and protect you from corporate retaliation.
SEC Whistleblower Program
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act established the SEC Whistleblower Program. With strong whistleblower confidentiality provisions, this program offers whistleblowers employment protections and the option to report possible securities violations anonymously when they are represented by counsel. Our attorneys know that confidentiality is paramount for SEC whistleblowers and can assist you in making the most of those protections.
False Claims Act
The False Claims Act is designed to bring law enforcement attention to schemes that defraud taxpayers, and to remedy fraudulent corporate culture by imposing liability on companies and individuals that defraud the federal government. It empowers private individuals, who are not affiliated with the government, to file complaints on the government’s behalf. These claims are called qui tam lawsuits.
