  • On May 25, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) adopted final rules to create a whistleblower award program, thereby implementing the requirements of Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”). The final rules reward individuals who provide the SEC with high-quality tips that lead to successful enforcement actions against companies that violate federal securities laws.
