San Diego SEC Whistleblower Lawyers

Home/San Diego SEC Whistleblower Lawyers

Individuals with knowledge of securities law violations, known as whistleblowers, can come forward and report such violations to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). SEC whistleblower cases are crucial to maintaining market integrity, protecting investors, and ensuring accountability within the financial sector. Miller Shah LLP is dedicated to assisting SEC whistleblowers, offering comprehensive support and guidance throughout the reporting process. Our San Diego SEC whistleblower lawyers are dedicated to safeguarding your rights and providing quality assistance every step of the way. 

Whistleblower Rights and Protections

Whistleblowers play a vital role in uncovering and reporting securities law violations.  However, reporting fraud or misconduct often comes with risks. Fortunately, under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, whistleblowers are shielded from retaliation by their employers. This protection is enables individuals to come forward without fear of losing their jobs, facing demotion, or experiencing other forms of workplace retaliation, thereby encouraging would-be whistleblowers to speak up. By providing these protections, the Dodd-Frank Act fosters an environment where transparency and accountability can thrive.

In addition to protecting whistleblowers from workplace retaliation, the Dodd-Frank Act offers significant financial incentives. Whistleblowers may receive compensation ranging from 10% to 30% of the monetary sanctions collected as a result of their information, provided that the sanctions exceed $1 million. Additionally, the Act ensures that whistleblowers have the right to confidentiality throughout the SEC’s investigation. These provisions further incentivize individuals to report misconduct that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Types of SEC Violations

Whistleblowing can address a wide range of securities law violations, including but not limited to:

  • Insider Trading: The illegal practice of using confidential information to trade on the stock exchange to one’s own advantage. 
  • Accounting Fraud: Manipulating financial statements to present a false picture of a company’s financial health.
  • False Statements: Providing misleading or false information to investors or the public.
  • Manipulation of Securities Values: Actions intended to deceive investors by affecting the price or perceived value of securities.

These violations, among others, undermine the integrity of financial markets and can have far-reaching consequences for investors and the economy at large.
