Today’s video podcast touches on 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”).
Dodd-Frank is a relatively new law that has not yet generated a substantial number of court decisions. A very long discussion of Dodd Frank is discussed in our paper. Our paper primarily focuses on the whistleblower incentive and anti-retaliation provisions of the statute itself, and the implementing regulations issued in May 2011. See 15 U.S.C. § 78u–6 et seq.; Securities Whistleblower Incentives and Protections, 76 Fed.Reg. 34,300 (June 13, 2011) (codified at 17 C.F.R. §§ 240.21F–1 to 240.21F–17).
An outstanding article that covers the law and final regulations in comprehensive fashion is Dodd-Frank and the SEC Final Rule: From Protected Employee To Bounty Hunter, ST001 ALI-ABA 1487 (July 28-30, 2011), which was written by Littler Mendelson, P.C. lawyers John S. Adler, Edward T. Ellis, Barbara E. Hoey, Gregory C. Keating, Kevin M. Kraham, Amy E. Mendenhall, Kenneth R. O’Brian, and Carole F. Wilder.
