To be anonymous, whistleblowers must retain a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act lawyer to file the Form TCR on their behalf.

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act attorneys at Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto are committed to representing high-profile whistleblowers and engaging with international NGOs and responsive government officials, to combat corruption and promote transparency worldwide. All of the firm’s FCPA whistleblowers are anonymous, most of whom are non-U.S. citizens. KKC’s clients have reported a myriad of illegal activity including foreign bribery, international fraud, falsification of company records, market manipulation, and other securities and commodities violations and have hailed from every continent on earth, except for Antarctica.

In 2020, Kohn, Kohn and Colapinto and Athens-based Greek law firm, Pavlos K. Sarakis & Associates, jointly represented Greek whistleblowers who proved that the multinational Swiss-based pharmaceutical company Novartis paid millions in bribes to illegally market drugs in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Novartis was required to pay over $300 million in sanctions and fines to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”). This is just one of several examples of successful FCPA whistleblower cases Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto has fought and won.

If you know of an incident of foreign bribery or have witnessed any other type of FCPA violations, you could be entitled to receive an award of between 10 and 30 percent of the total amount recovered by the government if a successful enforcement action follows their disclosures. However, because there are unique issues related to international whistleblowers, and maintaining anonymity is crucial, you should contact one of our experienced whistleblower lawyers who have worked with international whistleblowers prior to taking any action.

Howard Wilkinson - Money Laundering Whistleblower

Howard Wilkinson

On September 19, 2018, news broke of $234 billion money laundering scheme. The scheme moved rubbles out of Russia, converted them to dollars at the Estonian branch of Danske Bank, and then moved the dollars to New York with the assistance of three correspondent banks (Bank of America, J.P Morgan, and Deutsche Bank). Danske Bank admitted all of its internal controls designed to prevent money laundering had failed. The bank also revealed that the scheme had been reported to the highest levels of the bank by a whistleblower over four years before. The whistleblower’s identity was required to be secret. But it took only days for his name to leak out. Soon the entire international banking world learned that the former Danske Bank manager Howard Wilkinson had exposed the largest money laundering scheme in history, and that the bank had tried to cover it up.
