Labaton Sucharow assists a SEC Whistleblower to get a significant Reward.

The Labaton Sucharow Law Firm is a highly reputable provider of whistleblower representation services. The company established its whistleblower representation service in 2010, and it has developed over time to be the best in the industry. It currently has staff who make its services exceptional, and its professionals include financial predictors, internal investigators, and forensic auditors. The firm recently informed the public that one of the clients that it represents was awarded $17 million by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The informant’s reward is usually set by the whistleblower protection laws, and it is 10 to 30 percent of the money that is gained by the commission as penalties.

The intelligence that was provided by the whistleblower assisted the SEC in discovering several illegal undertakings that were being committed by top firms in the financial sector. The SEC is usually keen on safeguarding the identity of the whistleblower, and therefore, it did not provide much information about the case since it may disclose the informant. The head of the whistleblower representation practice of Labaton Sucharow, Jordan A. Thomas, believes that it was right for the whistleblower to offer information to the SEC. Mr. Thomas was an assistant director of the SEC, and therefore, he has ample knowledge and experience in state and federal securities laws.

The Congress created the Investor Protection Fund, which has $400 million that is used for paying informants of the SEC. The commission also encourages foreigners to report cases, and therefore, it provides translators for individuals who do not understand English. The identity of the informant is always protected, and the attorney-client privilege safeguards the information that is provided by the SEC whistleblowers.

Labaton Sucharow has been offering legal services for the past 50 years. The company has been handling cases that deal with securities and the primary clients that it has been serving are organizational investors, consumers, and enterprises. It was a frontrunner in offering representation to informants, and its whistleblower program is currently well established to file proper litigations for the clients. Its employees are well informed on the enactment of the state and federal securities laws hence they can offer the best representation to the SEC informants. The Legal 500, Chambers and Partners and Benchmark Litigation have named the company as a top provider of legal solutions for the complainants.

Mike Baur’s Awesome Founder Story

Mike Baur is becoming a powerful name in Switzerland but it’s also becoming a household name for startups too. Baur has more than 20 years of experience in the banking industry, and when on Founder Stories, Jean-Pierre Vuilleumier asks him what makes this venture such a success. His vast experience in the financing and fundraising for his new venture is just one of the many ways in which he has created success for he and his partners. However, there is more to finance for this successful accelerator program designed for these startups.

 

The first question out of the gate was about why Baur left such a successful career in the banking industry. While it was a tough question, Baur was transparent about the fact that private banking wasn’t so exciting for him all of the time. He had the chance to do something different, and creating an incubation challenge for new startups was exciting for him. While he wasn’t sure at first how things would go, he wanted to invest in startups in Switzerland. The bottom line is that he saw a need and he was able to go in and solve the problem.

 

Secondly, Baur was wise to choose such a fitting name for this venture. The Swiss Startup Factory was appropriate, because the name appeals to the younger crowd and it conveys that young people are going to have to work hard. Baur feels that the younger generation may not always see just how hard it is to be successful, and that’s what he wants these individuals to see without fail.

 

Baur knows what it takes to invest, and he says that they have their skin in the game. He was conveying that they have their money and their time invested, so they are fully vested in what they are doing with the SSUF. Switzerland is viewed as a country of innovation, and when Baur noticed that they didn’t have any young and successful companies he believed that he could help. His vast knowledge and personal experience are a welcome contribution for the country, and he hopes that it will prove true for the SSUF long-term.

 

His goal was to invest in the fintech industry, which is a thriving industry right now on a global scale as digital technologies continue to be developed.
