The SEC enforces securities laws that prohibit companies from making false statements or material omissions in their corporate disclosures and financial filings. False statements and material omissions in corporate statements can have significant consequences for the investing public and undermine the accuracy and reliability of our securities markets.
Whistleblowers are often best-positioned to know that certain false statements have been made or material information not disclosed by companies. Whistleblowers with information on persons who have violated securities laws prohibiting market manipulation are encouraged to report to the SEC Whistleblower Office. If one reports such fraud with the help of qualified SEC whistleblower attorney, the whistleblower may remain anonymous.
Hagens Berman represents several whistleblower actions under the SEC Whistleblower Program, including representation of high-profile market expert Haim Bodek, and marshals its significant nationwide resources and expertise in financial fraud to best present whistleblower matters to the SEC.
