From Jenice's interview for the Masters of the Courtroom series on ReelLawyers.com.
Malecki Law’s New York Whistleblower lawyers represent a number of anonymous whistleblowers, including Dodd-Frank whistleblowers, in active and closed investigations. These tips involve millions of dollars in bounties, for tipping off the SEC with original information leading to and assisting large SEC investigations. Malecki Law often sits down at the table with the SEC, the DOJ and the US Attorney’s office on whistleblower matters. Experience matters.
Malecki Law’s New York Whistleblower lawyers know that it often takes the courage of whistleblowers to call out covertly illegal business practices. In July 2010, the United States government passed the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This reform aims for increased public watch and censure of misconduct in state and national economic affairs. Dodd-Frank takes precise strides to protect the whistleblowers within the finance industry, as well as compensate anyone who believes that they know of wrongdoing, regardless of whether they worked for or with the company or not. Our whistleblower attorneys in New York can guide you in filing a tip. Even rumors, if they can be substantiated, could generate a whistleblowing award, up to 30% of a total recovery greater than $1,000,000.
Dodd-Frank further punishes employers who mistreat, threaten, or otherwise persecute whistleblowers offering information to towards any regulatory action. Whistleblowers can remain anonymous and if they are retaliated against, our whistleblower law firm in New York routinely files a separate tip or action, even in the same matter, if retaliation occurs.
Malecki Law’s whistleblower attorneys in New York are ready for completely confidential in-person or virtual consultations. The SEC has awarded over $1 billion in whistleblower awards since the time it started issuing whistleblower awards back in 2012. As the public awareness of whistleblower rewards and awards spread more substantial tips and claims have been reported. The Office of the Whistleblower (OWB) has also continued its efforts to make whistleblowers feel safe and the anti-retaliatory protection encourages individuals to come forward.
Malecki Law helps prepare statements and ensure that whistleblowers are ably represented when addressing the regulators at hand. One of the most important features of Dodd-Frank is the award system for whistleblowers who provide original information and the anti-retaliatory provision. They need skilled representation otherwise they might risk waiving away their rights to claim the award.
Our whistleblower law firm in New York have a substantial background advocating for clients in whistleblower filings and litigation, including retaliation claims. We represent people throught the country and the world in these claims. Before the collapse of the housing market, in the wake of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and prior to and after the Dodd-Frank Act, Ms. Malecki, our lead whistleblower lawyer in New York, represented multiple whistleblowers, including some of the first, Arturo Cifuentes and Eric Kolchinsky amongst others. At that time, whistleblowers had less anonymity. Today, our clients enjoy the anonymity of the Dodd Frank Act.
