The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, known as the SEC, is an agency of the government of the United States that acts in an independent manner. The primary focus of the agency is to enforce the laws that exist in regard to securities as well as the stock and option exchanges of the United States. One of the major programs within the SEC is the Whistleblower Program. This is a program that provides incentives for those who provide SEC Whistleblower tips. Facilitating incentives to those who report activities that violate what is known as the Commodity Exchange Act is the primary focus of the SEC Whistleblower Program.

One of the most impressive accolades accomplished by the Labaton Sucharow team occurred as a result of the advocacy the firm did for whistleblowers who came forward in reporting Merrill Lynch. This was during the 2016 calendar year and the final settlement announced by the SEC came to an impressive total of more than $400 million. This was due to the misuse of funds provided by customers and this was brought to light by brave whistleblowers that were represented by the team at Labaton Sucharow.
