SEC Whistleblower Program
News & Insights
Whistleblower Representation Practice Chair Jordan Thomas has been named finalist in Benchmark Litigation’s Plaintiff Attorney of the Year for representing the whistleblowers that were awarded $83 million from the SEC’s Whistleblower Program – the largest in the Program’s history. The whistleblowers provided information to the SEC that led to a landmark $415 million enforcement action against Merrill Lynch. In 2018, Jordan also led the team that secured a $70 million settlement in the Philip Falcone hedge fund tax case. It was the largest ever tax whistleblower recovery in New York state history.
In October, Benchmark recognized Jordan as a “Local Litigation Star.” Benchmark wrote “one of [Jordan’s prior firm’s] biggest developments, and one which has received a significant level of attention from peers, opponents, and the media as of late, is the firm’s ‘whistleblower’ practice, for which credit lies with Jordan Thomas…‘Jordan is a Trailblazer,’ confirms one peer. ‘He will lead . . . into the future.’”
Benchmark will announce its Plaintiff Attorney of the Year on Thursday, February 28 at a ceremony at the Essex House in New York.
