The country of Brazil has a long history of creating and revoking laws to such an extent the judiciary of the nation are said to be unaware of exactly how many laws remain in place. An estimation has been made that there are over 181,000 laws on the books in Brazil but the exact number remains unknown because of a lack of documentation detailing which laws were revoked and which remain in place.
One lawyer who has risen to the top of the Brazilian legal system is Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho, a mass litigation expert who also practices in the areas of criminal and financial legalities. Over the course of his career, Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho has developed a range of expert areas of law where he and his fellow members of the Leite, Tosto, and Barros law firm have become expert in bringing finance-based cases to the attention of the judicial system across Brazil.
There are many reasons why Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho has risen to the top of the Brazilian legal system including the dedication to assessing every detail of a case prior to it finally making its way to court or a financial settlement. It is probably the area of mass litigation which has allowed Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho to become so famous in the eyes of the public within Brazil; the ability of the law firm of Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho to enhance and understand international business law and how it fits into the confusing rule of law in Brazil.
Across the country of Brazil, many laws have been created and remain in place which is currently the subject of a judicial review to ensure outdated or revoked laws do not remain active in the country. Among the many laws in the country are some which have been created for strange reasons including a ban on gambling which does not extend to the Internet; Brazilian law argues the Internet is not under the jurisdiction of the country as the Web is a global arena for both good and bad.
Imagine for a second that you are a SEC whistleblower. You have just come forth with evidence that will damn an entire large financial institution in the United States. The evidence will be all over the news in a matter of hours and the fallout will be immediate.
What is one of the things that you would worry about most? I think most reasonable people would fear retaliation. They would think that it was the end of the line for them in the financial industry altogether. I think you would worry about your retirement funds or any other money that you had tied up in the company.
Now imagine that scenario with the protection of a good SEC whistleblower lawyer. A good SEC whistleblower attorney can navigate the protections granted to you by the Dodd Frank act of 2010. The Dodd Frank act is a regulatory measure that aims to prevent any kind of mass fraud from melting the financial institutions of our country much like the subprime mortgage crisis did in 2008. And while the law gets busy regulating these large financial institutions, it’s most important aspects are those that protect whistleblowers within the industry.
Under the protection of a good lawyer and law firm, you could leak this evidence to law enforcement anonymously. This could give you a glimmer of hope in keeping your job and give you a very strong future in the financial industry overall. But if none of those things come true, there are financial incentives built into the Dodd Frank act in order to help you come forward.
The federal government levies massive fines against financial institutions that betray the trust of the American people. These fines can exceed millions of dollars. If you come forward under the rules of the Dodd Frank act, you could be entitled to anywhere between 10% and 30% of those fines. It could be enough money to set you up for the rest of your life. And it is all for doing the right thing.
Labaton Sucharow was the first law firm to specialize in Dodd Frank whistleblower protections. The law firm hired Jordan A Thomas to run the whistleblower protection program. Mr. Thomas used to be the assistant director at the division of enforcement at the Securities and Exchange Commission. He knows exactly how Dodd Frank prosecution works and how to protect you through the entire process. Contact him in order to have your case evaluated.
