Thornton Law Firm LLP announced today that a firm client has been awarded the largest amount ever to one individual under the SEC’s whistleblower program, nearly $50 million dollars.
Working with his counsel at the firm, Michael A. Lesser, the client provided original information to the Securities and Exchange Commission that resulted in a successful enforcement action that returned a significant amount of money to harmed investors. The SEC’s investigations into foreign currency exchange transactions (also known as Forex, or FX) were some of the largest, broadest investigations ever conducted by the independent federal regulatory agency.
