Guide to SEC Whistleblower Program published by Whistleblower lawyer David J. Marshall

June 28, 2011

David J. Marshall, a partner at Katz Banks Kumin, has published a comprehensive SEC Whistleblower guide outlining the rules that empower insiders to earn substantial monetary awards for reporting securities violations to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Since the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002, Marshall has successfully represented many employees of public companies who have faced retaliation for blowing the whistle on shareholder fraud and other violations of securities regulations.

Marshall now represents whistleblowers who file “tips” with the SEC under the new program that provides significant financial awards to insiders who provide information that helps the SEC bring successful enforcement actions against securities-law violators.

Marshall’s article, entitled “Doing Well by Doing the Right Thing:  A Guide to the SEC Whistleblower Program and the New Rules that Can Lead to Rewards for Reporting Securities Violations,” provides a detailed outline of the key concepts and rules that whistleblowers and their attorneys can use to prepare and submit high-quality tips to the SEC and earn 10% to 30% of the amounts the SEC recovers.
