IW's founder represents whistleblowers in actions to recover a share of fines paid in the wake of SEC enforcement actions. His experience as an SEC Enforcement Branch Chief is invaluable in that kind of work. IW knows what evidence the SEC needs in order to prove violation of the statutes and rules that it polices. Sometimes the conduct violates the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Other times the conduct violates Sarbanes-Oxley or the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Whatever the violations, IW knows what evidence the SEC needs in order to prove its case. It can, therefore, prepare a whistleblower package that will stand out among a potential sea of anonymous and vague "tips."
The whistleblower package that IW prepares will rise to the top of the pile when the SEC considers the distribution of funds available for whistleblower payments. But, please keep in mind, speed counts. Reporting the violations first has a big impact on the claim. Because of its SEC experience, IW is equipped to produce the most helpful whistleblower package possible in a matter of hours, thereby increasing the whistleblower's chances at a substantial recovery.
Whistleblower work fits hand-in-glove with IW's mission of exposing misconduct. Whether it's uncovering fraud in a prospective investment before it can damage a retirement account, or bringing to light accounting fraud at a publicly traded company, IW helps protect investors worldwide by bringing sunlight to conduct that bad actors would prefer to keep secret.
