Thomas is the Chair of the Whistleblower Representation Practice at Labaton Sucharow, which is the first and only national practice that is exclusively devoted to the representation of whistleblowers with information on violations of the federal securities laws.  Jordan is widely regarded as one of the top SEC Whistleblower advocates.  To date, he has won the fourth largest SEC Whistleblower award for a client, over $17 million. He also successfully represented the first officer of a public company to win an SEC whistleblower award, the first SEC Whistleblower to receive criminal immunity and the first SEC whistleblower to receive an award because his company retaliated against him.  Among other high-profile successes, his clients are responsible for the recent $307 million JPMorgan and $415 million Merrill Lynch SEC settlements, their applications for awards are pending.
