The 2008 economic slowdown caused major problems around the world as people from all areas sought the best ways of dealing with a global economy that had stalled to such an extent the effects are still felt in 2016. In response to the problems of 2008 the Securities and Exchange Commission took stops to avoid any similar problems occurring in the future by working alongside legislators to introduce the Dodd-Frank Act, which introduced wide ranging measures to regulate the financial industry; among the changes made was the introduction of an SEC Whistleblower program introduced by Jordan A. Thomas to assist those who felt issues should be raised with the SEC regarding companies or individuals being dealt with in the industry.
Jordan A. Thomas has now brought his skills to the law firm of Labaton Sucharow as they have established one of the first dedicated SEC whistleblower departments. Under the leadership of Thomas the company has been making a mark aiding those who are looking to raise awareness of irregularities in the financial industry whether in the form of a company they work for or any other area of the financial world.
The group is looking to make sure those who join the SEC Whistleblower program have the chance to enjoy all the protections and benefits the program allows, which include a guarantee over future employment when their activities have been revealed. Further issues the law firm are looking to assist whistleblowers in are the monetary rewards that can be found in some areas of the SEC Whistleblower program, which include the awarding of funds to the individual when fines and penalties are taken out against a company or individual by the SEC.
Working with a specialist group when an individual believes serious problems can be found in any financial company can have its benefits as Labaton Sucharow employ an entire team of specialists with skills developed to ensure the claims of any person are investigated to make sure they are wroth taking to the SEC; avoiding bringing unnecessary claims to the SEC will avoid embarrassment and reduce the chances of future problems for the individual involved in bringing their concerns forward.
