The SEC also investigates several other types of securities fraud, including theft and misappropriation of funds or securities, fraudulent conduct in the arena of municipal securities and public pensions, improper fees/mark-ups/commissions by broker dealers and others and other fraudulent sales and financial advisory practices.
With each of these types of fraud, a whistleblower is often the only person who can help stop these violations of securities laws. Those with knowledge of securities fraud 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.
