Partner Steven J. Durham was featured on a podcast with FCPA Compliance and Ethics Report to discuss the impact of the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Digital Realty Trust v. Somers. Durham contends that without the possibility of a monetary reward and employment protections, there is little to no incentive to report internally before going to the SEC. In turn the SEC is likely to become flooded with possible violations and a lack of available processing power. Steven goes on to comment on the role of whistleblower counsel, and the need for their increased diligence in assessing the validity of such claims before submission to the SEC.
