Ramson of Greenberg Traurig, LLP.
Debra Katz will participate on the panel, “Navigating the Interplay of Whistleblower Reward and Whistleblower Retaliation Claims.” This topic addresses multiple issues ranging from the complex relationship from whistleblower rewards and retaliation claims, to addressing the challenges posed by parallel proceedings. Ms. Katz will be joined by Lloyd B. Chinn of Proskauer Rose LLP, Scott R. Koch of JPMorgan Chase, Jane Norberg from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and Linda Wawzenski out of the Northern District of Illinois U.S. Attorney’s Office.
