False Press Release Whistleblower Lawyer
If you know of a press release that was intended to mislead investors, the SEC might reward you for the information. Find out by speaking with a false press release whistleblower lawyer.
There are many ways that corporations can mislead investors, and false press releases are perhaps one of the most effective. When a company, investment bank, or mutual fund promotes untrue information that deceives investors, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) takes notice.
Do you know of misleading reports or press materials that were released in order to misrepresent a company’s success? If so, a false press release whistleblower lawyer from Meissner Associates can help you bring it to the attention of the SEC and possibly collect a substantial monetary reward.
False Press Releases Issued by Companies
In order to make informed trading decisions, investors need to have access to relevant information about the companies issuing the securities they are buying and selling. A misleading press release can hide a company’s true financial state and obscure information that should have been disclosed.
For example, if a company issues a press release promoting record profits for the past quarter when it’s actually struggling to remain financially solvent, investors might make their trading decisions based on the assumption that the company is a safe—even lucrative—investment.
When the company eventually goes bankrupt, these deceived investors could lose their entire life savings. By working with a false press release whistleblower lawyer, you can prevent this from happening.
False Press Releases Issued by Investment Banks and Advisors
The SEC is also interested in false press releases issued by investment banks and hedge and mutual fund managers. Some of these organizations misrepresent their investment history, presenting themselves as more successful than they actually are.
This can trick unwary investors into allowing these entities to manage their stock portfolios, thinking that they’re putting their money into capable hands. These investors then learn the hard way that their advisor isn’t as knowledge as the press releases indicated.
Become a Whistleblower, Be Rewarded
By tipping the SEC off to a false press release, you won’t just be protecting investors, you could also be rewarded for blowing the whistle. If the SEC sanctions the entity behind the press release and recovers more than $1,000,000, you’ll be rewarded with between 10 and 30 percent of the amount collected.
Your information must be original, however, and waiting too long can decrease the percentage awarded to you. When it comes to whistleblowing, it pays to act quickly and decisively.
