Phillips & Cohen’s New York office offers consultation and representation to US and international whistleblowers under reward programs offered by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the US False Claims Act and similar state whistleblower laws such as the New York False Claims Act.
Our law firm has strong working relationships with the US Attorneys’ Offices and the SEC regional office in New York as well as the New York Attorney General due to our whistleblower cases.
Our New York whistleblower lawyers represent whistleblowers from Wall Street banks and others in the financial services industry, as well as whistleblowers who report fraud against the state of New York, local governments and the federal government.
Success on Wall Street
Phillips & Cohen has had great success for its clients with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s whistleblower program. We have won three separate SEC whistleblower awards for our clients, including a whistleblower reward of more than $32 million. That is the one of the largest awards the SEC has made under its whistleblower reward program.
A whistleblower case brought by Phillips & Cohen in the US Southern District of New York exposed the practice of “yield-burning” by Wall Street banks and led to more than two dozen banks, including Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, paying the federal government over $220 million to settle civil charges.
Helping the State of New York Recover $20M
Our whistleblower lawyers represented the whistleblowers whose “qui tam” case under the New York False Claims Act resulted in the largest recovery under the state law that didn’t involve healthcare. The case helped the state recover $20 million from a company that was allegedly defrauding school food programs.
