Labaton Sucharow's Whistleblower Representation Practice released the findings of its latest survey on whistleblowers and corporate integrity

But a new survey by law firm Labaton Sucharow LLP, which looks to work with potential whistleblowers to help SEC investigations, found 26% of financial employees in the U.S. and U.K. surveyed had firsthand knowledge of "wrongdoing in the workplace."

Partly explaining that: 24% of those surveyed believed rules "may have to be broken in order to be successful."
