Comments on Proposed Rules for Implementing the Whistleblower Provisions of Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

Christopher R. Hall, chair of the White Collar and Government Enforcement Practice Group, collaborated with two other attorneys to draft commentary submitted to the Securities Exchange Commission by the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) on the SEC’s Proposed Rules for Implementing the Whistleblower Provisions of Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. NACDL intended that its comments help the Commission to strike the right balance between whistleblower incentives and protection, on the one hand, and fair processes for the internal investigation and assessment of suspect conduct by entities on the other.
