SEC Whistleblower Program
News & Insights
In highly encouraging news for investors and market integrity, the SEC’s Boston regional director, Paul Levinson, recently told Law360 that the agency’s Whistleblower Program is yielding a “steady fire hose” of fraud tips and having a remarkable effect on the culture of the financial services industry in New England.
The Boston area’s success is just the latest evidence of the Whistleblower Program’s tremendous and growing power. The most recent annual report from the Office of the Whistleblower revealed record numbers in both the number and dollar value of awards granted to individuals.
Whistleblowers are bravely coming forward – and are doing so in droves.
In just over four years, the program has gained traction against deep and systemic corruption. While the decision to come forward is never taken lightly, we are heartened to see that so many truth- tellers feel empowered to do so.
