This article, about the increase in whistle-blower-related matters as a result of the Dodd-Frank Act, quotes employment law partner Mike Delikat.
Orrick is recognized as one of the firms who have experienced an increase in whistle-blower-related engagements as a result of the new law. The firm’s whistleblower task force that Delikat established in July 2010 now encompasses 60 lawyers in a variety of practices.
"Dodd-Frank has led to a whole new wave of matters because it discourages people from using a company's internal reporting process, and encourages them to go directly to the SEC regarding any possible wrongdoing," said Delikat.
