Saving The Country One Whistleblower At A Time

Jordan A. Thomas used to work in capacity as an Assistant Director. He was also Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel. Both of these offices were held down by Thomas in the SEC, specifically the Division of Enforcement. While in this position, Thomas drafted legislation that would eventually become known as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

This act has been labeled by many as one of the most expansive in the history of the United States; at least since the Great Depression. And it should be, the Great Recession of 2008 is starting to impact the entire country now, just like waves spread incrementally from the center of an impact and thence proceed to higher values of fluctuation before settling again. Jordan A. Thomas wants to see things settle again, so proceeding the 2008 crisis, he wrote the legislation that was enacted in 2010, and immediately began to lead a legal practice called Labaton Sucharow.

Labaton Sucharow specializes in Whistleblower Representation, and was the first to do so after the Dodd-Frank Reform came into effect. Through Dodd-Frank, whistleblowers do not have to fear the loss of their job. The legislation protects their employment status, and ensures that they’ll be able to continue functioning within their corporate enterprise without facing recriminations. Additionally, Dodd-Frank provides incentives. Specifically, between ten and thirty percent of recovered monetary sanctions will be given to whistleblowers. There are more available incentives available, provided additional sanctions are recovered. The ten to thirty percent spread indicates some room for negotiation as well, demonstrating just how well Jordan A. Thomas understands the situation.

Finally, for those who must retain their anonymity, such a thing is possible through Labaton Sucharow. When you contact them for an initial consultation, you need not provide your name–though this is strongly advised. Such consultations are cost-free, as an initial consultation should be. Anonymity can continue throughout the case, though it is possible whistleblowers will become known to the attorneys.

Sometimes remaining anonymous in the dispensation of information to government agencies is the only way to remain on good terms with any of the employees that such individuals work with on a daily basis. It’s very difficult to continue working at the same wages when everybody in the office becomes hateful against the person who reported unethical practices. This can happen. Legal representation is the only way to ensure any level of anonymity.
