Beyond Qui Tam | Worldwide SEC Whistleblower Representation
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, with whistleblower protection under Sections 922 and 929A, were drafted by Congress with specific instructions to be user friendly and to use plain English. The SEC responded with 200 pages of complex rules.
Daniel Hurson is a Washington DC SEC whistleblower attorney who has handled whistleblower claims nationwide and from overseas locations. He not only understands the whistleblower law, he is cited by name in the SEC regulations as one of the commentators during the drafting of the regulations. Unlike a large law firm with qui tam lawyers who may have a vague familiarity with SEC whistleblower claims, at our firm we have extensive and in-depth experience with these securities laws and regulations. Attorney Hurson was interviewed extensively about the new law by the BNA Securities Law Reporter.
Whistleblower Protection Act | Worldwide Representation
Becoming an SEC whistleblower can have enormous impact on a career and must be very carefully planned and executed. At The Law Offices of Daniel J. Hurson, LLC, we represent corporate insiders and executives in high places who observe potentially illegal acts or SEC violations, and perhaps complain internally, but to no avail. The SEC has set aside $500 million for whistleblower protection. These funds are available specifically for whistleblowers who need financial as well as legal protection.
We understand that it is not easy to be a whistleblower. All discussions are privileged and confidential. We can keep the identity of a whistleblower confidential if he or she so desires.
"Once the SEC is investigating your employer, even if you are unaware of it, you can still go to the SEC with relevant information and qualify as a whistleblower." — Attorney Daniel Hurson
The types of SEC or other violations that would potentially qualify as whistleblower claims are:
- Accounting fraud
- Any securities law violations
- Disclosure violations and misrepresentations in filings
- FCPA violations
- Insider trading
As a small firm, we are often free of conflicts, and appreciate the opportunity to help individuals pursue their grievances at modest cost, or even under contingency fee arrangements in appropriate cases.
