Help with Your SEC Whistleblower Form TCR
Becoming an SEC whistleblower begins with completing a Form TCR (Tip, Complaint, or Referral) and submitting it to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). While it is possible for a whistleblower to do this without legal counsel, it’s not recommended, and there are a number of advantages to working with an appropriately licensed whistleblower attorney.
Our firm has helped numerous whistleblowers with their Form TCR and the ensuing SEC investigation. These are just a few of the advantages that we provide to our clients:
Be an Anonymous Whistleblower
Under the Dodd-Frank Act, you can submit a whistleblower tip anonymously and still claim an award—but only if you work through a lawyer. If you submit the Form TCR on your own, then your personal information will need to be included on the form and it will be filed under your name.
If we help you with your Form TCR, your personal information will not need to appear on it. The form will also be filed under our firm’s name, thereby protecting your identity.
Highlight What the SEC Is Interested In
The SEC does not investigate every single tip it receives—it can’t. The securities industry is huge and the SEC is only so big. Our whistleblower attorneys know what sort of information will draw the SEC’s attention and what won’t.
We’ll ensure that everything on your Form TCR is phrased and compiled in such a way that it will maximize the attention it gets from the SEC.
Eliminate Form TCR Errors
Phrasing something incorrectly or omitting something from your Form TCR can lead to big trouble down the road—possibly of the legal variety. We can advise you of any culpability you might face if you blow the whistle and ensure that your tip is as helpful and transparent as possible.
Likewise, our office will make sure that your whistleblower form leaves nothing out and that everything is error-free.
