Securities and Commodities Fraud

Berger & Montague's Whistleblower, Qui Tam & False Claims Act Group represents Whistleblowers alleging securities or commodities fraud against the government.

The federal government is charged with the responsibility for maintaining the integrity of United States securities and commodities markets. Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Act, enacted on July 21, 2010, provides that individuals who voluntarily supply original information to the SEC about potential federal securities laws violations, or to the CFTC about potential commodities laws violations, that leads to a successful enforcement action in which monetary sanctions exceed $1 million, are entitled to an award of between 10% and 30% percent of all sanctions collected. Moreover, similar to the federal False Claims Act, the Dodd-Frank Act provides for substantial sanctions for employer retaliation directed at any employee who has a reasonable belief that a securities or commodities law violation has occurred or is about to occur.

Berger & Montague's Whistleblower, Qui Tam & False Claims Act Group is familiar with the whistleblower laws regarding the types of securities frauds and commodities frauds targeted by the Dodd-Frank Act, and has the experience and resources necessary to investigate and represent the interests of whistleblowers seeking to present their allegations to the SEC or the CFTC. This is especially true given our firm's extensive and highly successful history in recovering, through securities class actions, hundreds of millions of dollars in damages from corporations and individuals engaged in complex financial fraud schemes.

No Fees Without Recovery

Berger & Montague's Whistleblower, Qui Tam & False Claims Act Group litigates cases on a contingent fee basis, so whistleblowers do not pay attorneys' fees or court costs unless there is a recovery.
