A National Law Journal article entitled “Expert’s $700K Award Signals Return to SEC Whistleblower Program Roots” quotes whistleblower lawyer Jason Zuckerman about the significance of a $700,000 SEC whistleblower award for independent analysis. The award was announced in this SEC order.
The article quotes Jason Zuckerman’s analysis of the potential impact of this SEC whistleblower award:
Jason Zuckerman, principal of Washington-based Zuckerman Law, said the latest whistleblower award could lead more analysts to bring tips to the commission. “There’s a very large hedge fund industry industry in the United States. You have all these expert analysts who are poring over corporate financial statements and public disclosures all day. And they have very valuable analysis to offer the SEC. I think this award will provide a strong incentive for analysts to provide info to the SEC,” said Zuckerman, a former senior legal adviser to the special counsel at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, the federal agency charged with protecting whistleblowers in the federal government.
