Approaching Attorney Whistleblowing Post Dodd-Frank
April 11, 2012
Jordan A. Thomas co-authored an article for Law360, discussing the ability of in-house counsel to report securities violations following Dodd-Frank.
Co-authors Jordan A. Thomas and Professor Bruce Green of Fordham Law School address the complicated question of how an in-house counsel can blow the whistle. The SEC’s whistleblower program provides incentives and protections for informants, but attorneys must consider their own duties to their client and professional rules of conduct. The article provides guidelines on how attorney whistleblowers should report corporate misconduct, if they choose to.
