Attorney-whistleblowing

Hello, all! Thanks for welcoming me as a guest blogger. I’m happy to share my recent articles in my two-part project on attorney-whistleblowing. The first, entitled Advocate or Adversary? When Attorneys Act as Whistleblowers, examines whether attorneys may receive whistleblowing bounty rewards from the SEC under Dodd-Frank and the ethical concerns surrounding this issue. This article is forthcoming in the Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics and available on SSRN by clicking here.

In my second piece, Conflicted Counselors: Retaliation Protections for Attorney-Whistleblowers in an Inconsistent Regulatory Regime, I examine a separate but related issue of retaliation protections for attorney-whistleblowers under Dodd-Frank in light of their reporting requirements under Sarbanes-Oxley. This article places special focus on in-house counsel and examines the various (and conflicting) regulatory regimes that govern attorney-whistleblowers in the corporate sector. You can access the article on SSRN by clicking here.

I hope you find these fruitful as this issue develops! If you would like to discuss more, please feel free to email me at jennifer.pacella@baruch.cuny.edu.
