Our Team

Whistleblowers deserve a strong partner and skilled advocate. Labaton Sucharow is the right firm, when you want to do the right thing.

For nearly 50 years, clients have turned to Labaton Sucharow to prosecute high-profile and high-stakes securities fraud. Our track record is compelling. On behalf of some of the most prominent institutional investors around the world, we have recovered billions of dollars and compelled sweeping corporate governance reforms to ensure that the financial marketplace operates with greater transparency, fairness, and accountability.

Credibility.  Experience.  Expertise.

Our Whistleblower Representation Practice leverages this unparalleled securities litigation expertise, marshaling significant in-house resources to protect and advocate for those courageous individuals who report possible securities violations—sometimes at great personal and professional risk. The practice’s investor protection mission is an important part of our Firm’s long-standing commitment to corporate governance reform.

The practice is led by Jordan A. Thomas, a former Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel in the Division of Enforcement at the SEC. During his tenure, Jordan played a leadership role in the development of the SEC Whistleblower Program, including drafting the proposed legislation and the final implementing rules. As the principal architect and first National Coordinator of the SEC’s Cooperation Program, an initiative designed to facilitate and incentivize individuals and companies to self-report securities violations, he is uniquely qualified to provide legal advice to potential whistleblowers, including those who may have civil or criminal liability. At the SEC, Jordan successfully investigated, litigated, and supervised a wide variety of high-profile enforcement matters—Enron, Fannie Mae, Citigroup, and UBS, among them—which resulted in monetary relief for harmed investors in excess of $35 billion.
