SEC Whistleblower Law Firm Labaton Sucharow

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.

The SEC’s Program that Protects the Rights of its Whistleblowers.

Individual who volunteer to give the helpful information to the Securities and Exchange Commission are currently protected by the whistleblower protection program, which was created in 2010. The formation of the plan was facilitated by the passing of the Wall Street Reform of Dodd-Frank and the Consumer Protection Act by the Congress. The regulations of the program offer job security to the whistleblowers, and it also assures them of a substantial financial motivation. The laws have motivated company employees and the public as a whole to report fraudulent undertaking of various organizations to the SEC.

Labaton Sucharow is one of the law firms that offer whistleblower representation services. It was formed about five decades ago, but it started offering the service in 2010. The firm was a pioneer in the sector. Its whistleblower representation practice has currently developed and has made the company to be recognized as one of the top plaintiff attorneys. Labaton Sucharow has ensured that it has an excellent structure of filing litigations by employing in-house detectives, financial experts, and forensic professionals who fully comprehend the implementation of the law. They are all devoted to offering outstanding legal solutions to the SEC’s informants.

The Labaton Sucharow appointed Jordan A. Thomas to serve as the head of its whistleblower representation practice. Jordan is a former assistant director of the SEC, and therefore, he has ample knowledge and experience in handling cases that involve securities. While he was in office, he assisted the organization in making the whistleblower representation laws.

According to the Dodd-Frank Act, companies are not allowed to treat the whistleblowers unfairly for offering information to the SEC. The whistleblower protection program gives the informant 10 to 30 percent of the money that the commission collects as fines. A one million dollars ceiling has been set by the laws, but the SEC’s sources can still receive more rewards from other organizations that use their information to impose fines on lawbreakers.

Informants who would like to hide their identity when reporting cases to the SEC are advised to use attorneys as her representatives. Consulting the commission is free for both U.S citizens and foreigners. Translators are provided by the organization to assist individuals who do not speak and understand English. The SEC also keeps the information that the whistleblowers offer private and the intelligence is safeguarded by attorney-client privilege. Inquiries about the program can be made by calling and emailing the whistleblower representation team.

Ricardo Tosto: A Renowned Latin Lawyer

Brazil derives its laws from Portuguese, German, Italian and French Civil law. Brazilian law can sometimes be confusing since the country has more than 181,000 unique laws. The Federal Constitution is the supreme law of the country and has been in force from October 21st, 1988. The Federal Constitution arranges the country into states, municipalities, and Federal District.

The country has 26 federate states all of which have powers to formulate their own laws and Constitutions. Their independence is however restricted by the dictates of the Federal Constitution. The autonomy of municipalities is also restricted since they follow the principles spelled out by the Constitution of the state where they belong, and those of the Federal Constitution. Federal District, on the other hand, mixes the functions of municipalities and federate states, and its constitution (Organic Law) must conform to the principle of the Federal Constitution.


Brazil is a home to more than 600,000 active lawyers. The country’s total number of lawyers is spread across its states with the State of São Paulo having the largest number of active lawyers followed by the State of Rio de Janeiro then the State of Minas Gerais.

Students are required to join a law school, and study the Course of Law for five years before graduating. Even after graduating, the student can’t practice yet; they must first pass the Bar examination. The Bar examination takes place throughout the country in March, August, and December. The Order of Attorneys of Brazil (OAB) which regulates the legal profession in the country unifies and organizes the Bar examination. The Bar examination is organized in two stages; the written test and the multiple choice test.
