In this episode, I visit with Steven Durham, a partner in the law firm of Labaton Sucharow. The firm is one of the leaders in the SEC Whistleblower practice. Durham describes his background and how he got to the firm. He relates the Whistleblower Practice at Labaton, what is your role and how Jordan Thomas worked to create the firm’s whistleblower practice after leaving the SEC. He then relates what the SEC Whistleblower program is and how has it worked to pay out over $150MM in bounties through this spring. Durham then discusses how the SEC Whistleblower office facilitates the SEC’s mission to protect investors, why whistleblowing benefits society and corporate America and how firms like Labaton assist the SEC in its practice. We conclude with a discussion of where Durham sees SEC Whistleblower program going under the Trump Administration.
