About this talk

The SEC’s Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program continues to be a robust source of information driving the Commission’s enforcement docket. In FY 2019, the Office of the Whistleblower received more than 5,000 whistleblower tips from 70 foreign nations and every U.S. state, handing out $60 million in cash awards in return. On top of that, Dodd-Frank-related litigation continues apace in the federal courts and legislative / regulatory responses to the Supreme Court’s decision in Digital Realty Trust wind their way through the halls of Congress and the Commission. Together these trends provide the perfect storm for keeping in-house counsel and compliance professionals up at night. Securities Docket is pleased to present its eighth annual webcast on Dodd-Frank’s whistleblower provisions. This year’s panelists once again include leading practitioners in all aspects of Dodd-Frank whistleblower litigation and investigations, including F. Joseph Warin and John W.F. Chesley of Gibson Dunn, former SEC Office of the Whistleblower Chief Sean X. McKessy of Phillips & Cohen, and Jim Barratt of Ankura Consulting. This free 90-minute webcast will include a dynamic and participatory discussion on the statutory and regulatory framework of Dodd-Frank’s whistleblower provisions, their interpretation by the SEC Office of the Whistleblower and federal courts, and provide participants with practical tips for navigating the minefield of whistleblower complaints.
