KTMC’s expanding Whistleblower Litigation Group announces that Rebecca M. Katz has joined the Firm as Of Counsel. Ms. Katz has been at the forefront of representing SEC whistleblowers since the inception of the SEC whistleblower program in 2010.
That program allows individuals to report violations of U.S. securities laws directly to the SEC and obtain a percentage of the recovery obtained by the SEC through a successful enforcement action. Ms. Katz brings more than twenty years experience fighting for the rights of those victimized by corporate fraud, both as a longtime SEC enforcement attorney and in private practice.
The Whistleblower Litigation Group represents clients who bring information of corporate wrongdoing to the attention of government authorities and are eligible to receive a share of the government’s recovery. The Group is chaired by Lee Rudy and David Bocian, two former federal prosecutors and partners of the Firm. Mr. Bocian was also the Chief Compliance Officer at a major health system before joining the Firm. Ms. Katz served for nine years in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. Since the passage of the Dodd-Frank SEC whistleblower program, she has developed extensive experience representing whistleblowers before the SEC. We welcome her addition to this growing practice group.
