Whistleblower Law

GS2Law has unparalleled experience in representing individual whistleblowers wishing to provide information of wrongdoing to the Commodities and Futures Trade Commission (CTFC) via the CTFC created by the Dodd-Frank Act. The Act allows for the payment of monetary awards to eligible whistleblowers, and also provides anti-retaliation protections for whistleblowers who share information with or assist the CFTC.

Over the last four years, Gs2law has worked closely with the Whistleblower Office in submitting information that caused an investigation to be opened while preserving the anonymity of the individual and has filed numerous claims for a whistleblower award.

Any individual wishing to submit information to the CTFC or even explore whether there is wrongdoing should be guided by a GS2Law lawyer who will have actual knowledge of successfully submitting a tip and obtaining have an award.
