Whistleblower Attorney Zuckerman Will Speak at Corporate Whistleblowing Forum

Whistleblower attorney Jason Zuckerman will speak on a panel at the Thomson Reuters 4th Annual Corporate Whistleblowing Forum on September 9, 2015 in New York. Faculty for the conference includes:

  • Sean McKessy – Chief, Office of the Whistleblower, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC);
  • Pierre G. Armand – Co-Chief, Civil Frauds Unit, U.S. Attorney’s Office/U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ); and

Regulators and enforcement authorities continue to successfully uncover, investigate and prosecute cases of fraud and abuse, insider trading and ‘white collar’ criminal activity within the corporate and financial services arenas. Much of the success of these enforcement actions is attributable to reports from corporate insiders who ‘blew the whistle’ on their colleagues unlawful activities. The SEC, CFTC and DOJ whistleblower programs have inspired whistleblowers from all walks of life to break their silence and report a wide variety of significant violations. Thomson Reuters is pleased to present its fourth conference dedicated exclusively to helping responsible corporations and organizations create cultures of integrity, detect misconduct, and appropriately respond to white collar criminal activity.

2014 was a record breaking year for the SEC’s Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program as whistleblower awards were issued to more individuals in 2014 than in all previous years combined! Reporting of white collar violations is expected to increase for 2015 and 2016 and it’s anticipated that regulators may see even larger whistleblower bounties being awarded.

Reserve your seat today for the pre-eminent forum dedicated to the pertinent topics and issues around whistleblowing, internal investigations and reporting of suspected white collar criminal activity. The program will take a deep dive into:

  • The latest numbers on whistleblower awards to date from the SEC, DOJ, IRS and CFTC
  • Direct insights from the regulators on enforcement activity
  • Proven best practices and success strategies on how to conduct effective internal investigations
  • Communicating the value of internal reporting
