Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto’s whistleblower attorneys have experience representing whistleblowers in cases involving complex financial and commodities fraud in the commodities markets. Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto currently represents CFTC whistleblowers under the confidential and “anonymous” whistleblower protection provisions of the Commodity Exchange Act and work closely with enforcement officials.
The CFTC whistleblower reward program, established in 2010 under the Dodd-Frank Act, pays whistleblower awards to eligible individuals who voluntarily provide the CFTC with original information on violations of the Commodity Exchange Act that leads to a successful enforcement action resulting in monetary sanctions exceeding $1,000,000. Rewards under the program are mandatory for qualified whistleblowers and are in the range of 10-30% of the collected proceeds. Employers cannot retaliate against whistleblowers or encumber potential whistleblowers from communicating with the CFTC.
