Los Angeles Dodd-Frank Attorneys

Home/Los Angeles Dodd-Frank Attorneys

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, commonly known as the Dodd-Frank Act, is a transformative piece of legislation enacted to enhance regulation and ensure accountability in the financial sector. Among its many provisions, the Dodd-Frank Act significantly strengthens protections for whistleblowers—individuals who come forward to reveal fraud and misconduct within the financial industry. At Miller Shah LLP, we recognize the crucial role whistleblowers play in ensuring fairness and accountability.  Our Los Angeles Dodd Frank attorneys are dedicated to safeguarding the rights of whistleblowers and can help you understand your legal options. 

What is the Dodd-Frank Act?

Enacted in July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Act was a response to the economic downtown of the previous years and was designed to prevent future financial crises by implementing stringent regulations on the financial industry. The Act addresses various aspects of financial regulation, including oversight of financial products, corporate governance, and consumer protection. One of the standout features of this legislation is its whistleblower protection program, which incentivizes individuals to report violations of securities laws and other financial misconduct.

Whistleblower Provisions and Benefits

The Dodd-Frank Act’s whistleblower provisions empower individuals to report illegal activities such as insider trading, bribery, and fraudulent financial statements. The legislation encourages whistleblowers to come forward by offering substantial monetary rewards and robust protections against retaliation. Key components of the Dodd-Frank whistleblower program include:

  • Monetary Rewards: Whistleblowers who provide original, voluntary information leading to successful enforcement actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) may be eligible for awards ranging from 10% to 30% of the total monetary sanctions collected, provided these sanctions exceed $1 million.
  • Retaliation Protections: Dodd-Frank prohibits retaliation against whistleblowers, offering remedies such as reinstatement, double back pay, and compensation for litigation costs.
  • Confidentiality: The SEC ensures that the identity of whistleblowers remains confidential throughout the investigation process, allowing individuals to report wrongdoing without fear of exposure.
