In response to the Great Recession, Congress passed a new law known as the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This was done in order to regulate the financial industry so that another economic crisis doesn’t happen again. It was also done to help prevent predatory financiers and firms from taking advantage of unsuspecting investors. As part of this new law, a new policy known as the SEC whistleblower program was enacted. With this new program, anyone who has knowledge of illegal activity in the finance industry taking place and/or has become a victim of such action will be entitled to legal representation.
One firm that has greatly benefited from this new program has been Labaton Sucharow. This firm specializes in representing victims of financial crimes in litigation cases. Over the years, Labaton Sucharow has been able to expose unethical activity in the finance industry and hold responsible parties accountable. It has also helped a number of individuals and businesses get compensation as well. The individual who currently runs the firm is Jordan Thomas, who has been practicing as a SEC whistleblower lawyer throughout the history of the firm. He was once part of the Securities and Exchange Commission, so he is very knowledgeable of the process of exposing unscrupulous activity in the finance industry.
Labaton Sucharow offers clients a number of services that ensure that they get the best representation and result in their case. As well as getting representation by an attorney, clients will be able to take advantage of a number of other forms of assistance. This includes financial analysts, investigators and forensic accountants. All of these professionals will work together to find out the source of unethical activity and expose it to the proper authorities. Labaton Sucharow allows clients to get an initial consultation to talk about their situation. A lawyer will then provide advice as well as submit documents to start a case. As well as submitting documents, the firm’s lawyers will also represent clients in court if necessary.
One of the things about Labaton Sucharow and the new whistleblower program is that anyone who seeks assistance will be able to remain anonymous. This will provide them with protection of their identity.
