Dodd-Frank rewards whistleblowers for taking action. Many of my clients’ primary interest is doing the right thing and helping clean up their companies. They contact me because they like having the ability to provide their information confidentially and anonymously to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Being able to submit their information via a highly confidential system makes them feel more comfortable than providing the information directly to their companies’ local compliance officers. To these clients, it is simply a bonus that they may receive a reward under the Dodd-Frank program. Some clients do not even want the money and have vowed to donate their rewards to various charities.
It is a rare thing in life where a person can be financially rewarded for choosing to do the right thing. The Dodd-Frank reward program is one of these. So far the Dodd-Frank program has paid out more than $150 million to whistleblowers who made the choice to do the right thing and stop their companies’ wrongdoing.
If someone has information about corporate bribery connected to an SEC-regulated company and would like to discuss making a confidential or anonymous submission under the Dodd-Frank reward program, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a free consultation.
