SEC Whistleblower Program
News & Insights
Our SEC whistleblower clients are diverse, coming from all walks of life, a wide range of industries and every corner of the globe.
Our clients tend to be senior executives that have a lot to lose or other knowledgeable individuals who are able to substantiate significant possible securities violations. While the majority of our clients elect to remain anonymous, we can share certain data points to provide greater insight into our practice.
Our clients’ tips resulted in landmark SEC enforcement actions against JP Morgan and Merrill Lynch — combined settlements of more than $720 million.
Our clients' tips have led to more than $1 billion in monetary sanctions levied by the SEC.
11% of our clients live outside the US.
While our clients have reported on public companies, banks, asset managers, broker-dealers, hedge funds, rating agencies and accounting firms, among others, 66% of them were in the financial services sector.
25% of our clients are “outsiders” – i.e. not employed by defendant company.
We are selective. Our past success allows us to be patient. Our work is deeply personal. We seek clients who are willing to roll up their sleeves and work hard to ensure the success of their cases and we studiously avoid clients who don’t play well with others. Ultimately, we trust our instincts. When a case is truly special, we feel it. It changes and excites us. Working with courageous SEC whistleblowers is the most rewarding thing that we can imagine doing with our lives.
