NEW YORK, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Veteran securities industry lawyer, Robert Herskovits, announced that the Securities and Exchange Commission has publicly approved a million dollar whistleblower award to the Firm's client, a compliance professional.
"This award is of particular significance because it is only the second award ever issued under the SEC's Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Program to a person with internal audit or compliance responsibilities," said Robert Herskovits. "It sends a powerful message to Wall Street: even compliance officers can receive a whistleblower bounty provided the compliance officer qualifies under Dodd-Frank's enumerated exceptions."
