OVERVIEW

Bryan A. Wood established the firm's Whistleblower Practice Group. Drawing from his many years of experience litigating complex financial fraud cases under the federal securities laws, Mr. Wood concentrates his practice on representing individuals seeking to submit tips under the SEC and CFTC whistleblower programs established by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. Mr. Wood also represents individuals in cases brought pursuant to the IRS whistleblower program.

 

Mr. Wood's whistleblower matters have resulted in SEC and CFTC investigations, civil and criminal cases in both federal court and administrative tribunals. Mr. Wood has represented clients in dozens of SEC, CFTC and IRS whistleblower actions concerning public accounting fraud, hedge fund valuation fraud, Ponzi schemes, market manipulation, FCPA violations, among other federal securities law violations. 

 

Mr. Wood also represents individuals bringing qui tam claims under federal and state False Claims Acts. 

 

Mr. Wood and his team of attorneys, accountants and investigators take seriously a whistleblower's need for discretion and, therefore, make every effort to provide the maximum degree of anonymity available throughout the entirety of the whistleblower process. Mr. Wood has experience working both with "insiders" and whistleblowers whose tips are based on their unique understanding, analysis and insight into a particular industry or firm.

 

Mr. Wood also remains active in the firm's securities and consumer departments.
