The Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program of the SEC aims to encourage whistleblowers from around the world to submit original, quality information to assist its Division of Enforcement to investigate and prosecute any conduct which violates our federal securities laws.
The SEC’s Division of Enforcement investigates and prosecutes a large number of cases across several different areas of securities fraud. In addition to enforcement of the prohibitions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, areas of focus include:
- Insider trading
- Market manipulation
- Fraud in corporate disclosures and financial statements
- Fraud in securities offerings
- Fraud in trading and pricing
- Unlawful securities schemes
- Various other forms of securities violations
Hagens Berman represents several whistleblower actions under the CFTC and SEC Whistleblower Programs, 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 and CFTC.
