Dodd-Frank Whistleblower Awards Exclude Lawyers Unfairly

Eric Dixon, the author of Crime, Politics and Policy, submitted a comment letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission expressing concerns over the proposed new Section 21F to the Exchange Act of 1934 providing for whistleblower awards but excluding lawyers from eligibility under the program. 

See Mr. Dixon's comprehensive comments to the SEC on Dodd-Frank here. 

Mr. Dixon has exposed wrongdoing as a whistleblower earlier in his professional career, and handles various investigative matters ranging from investigating wrongdoing in order to exonerate the wrongfully-investigated or wrongfully accused, to using the findings of investigations in the course of litigation.

Mr. Dixon is concerned that the new Dodd-Frank provisions will unfairly punish lawyers, impose a de facto strict liability upon lawyers and discourage efforts by lawyers to uncover wrongdoing. 

For a fuller treatment of these concerns, click on this link to the comment letter.
