The New York City Bar will offer an overview of Whistleblower Incentives and Protections under Dodd-Frank on Thursday, November 3, at the New York City Bar, 42 West 44th Street.
It begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 8:00 p.m.
Recently enacted laws like Dodd-Frank, as well as a number of regulations, precedent-setting court cases and administrative rulings, have dramatically expanded the number of whistleblowers, as well as their rights and protections. This area of the law has never been as important or as confusing. When Congress has legislated, it has done so in a piecemeal fashion, adding differing whistleblower protections with each new regulatory scheme. Against this backdrop, a panel of distinguished practitioners reviews the most important of the federal statutes and the latest rulings from our courts and administrative tribunals. Particular attentions will be paid to the False Claims Act, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Sarbanes-Oxley, and Dodd-Frank.
The panelists are Robert Kraus, Kraus & Zuchlewski LLP; Stephen Cohen, associate director, Division of Enforcement, U.S. SEC; Jyotin R. Hamid, Debevoise & Plimpton, LLP; and Margaret M. Madden, vice president and assistant general counsel, Pfizer Inc.
