At the New York City Bar Association, 42 West 44th Street New York, NY 10036, from 6:00 PM– 9:00 PM on September 27, 2012, Fred Abrams and distinguished lawyers Jack Blum and Jordan A. Thomas, will present “The Ins & Outs Of Recovering Assets Via Whistleblowers & Other Tipsters”. This program first analyzes how vast sums of money can be hidden in cases as diverse as tax and securities fraud and divorce.
It then describes ways whistleblowers or other tipsters may help sniff out these monies and discusses: the problems whistleblowers face in the real world, the advantages and disadvantages of the different whistleblower programs, and the difficulty lawyers face in dealing with whistleblowers either as clients or as tipsters.
The program also focuses on the ethical concerns gatekeepers like attorneys, accountants, officers and directors have, in reporting illegal behavior in both the civil and criminal contexts. Registration for this program is available through the City Bar Center for CLE, at Tel: (212) 382-6663 or register online at www.nycbar.org.
