The prominent securities law firm of Labaton Sucharow LLP has just released the results of its first-ever Ethics & Action Survey. In July 2011, in response to the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) groundbreaking new whistleblower program, enacted pursuant to Dodd-Frank, the firm launched the nation's first practice area focused exclusively on protecting and advocating for SEC whistleblower. The practice is led by Jordan Thomas, a former Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel in the SEC's Division of Enforcement, who has a leadership role in the development of the whistleblower program, including drafting the proposed legislation and implementing rules.
