Bank of America Whistleblower Matter

Pritzker Levine represented, on a confidential basis, a senior bank director who filed a whistleblower complaint with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Commodity Futures Exchange Commission, alleging insider trading and other securities violations by a trading group within the bank.  Following a multi-year investigation by the SEC, CFTC, Department of Justice and the FBI, Pritzker Levine’s client received a $1.5 million whistleblower award, the bank paid a multi-million fine, and the individuals in the trading group were fired.
