S.D.N.Y. Outreach to ‘Whistleblowers’ Takes Page From Main Justice Playbook
February 7, 2024 | New York Law Journal
S.D.N.Y.’s new Whistleblower Pilot Program calls on individuals to try out for Team America in exchange for an oft-coveted non-prosecution agreement. The Program parallels Main Justice policies that offer companies leniency when they voluntarily self-disclose. The Southern District’s new Whistleblower Program is a notable departure from its traditional rigid approach to cooperators. In their latest article for the NYLJ, “S.D.N.Y. Outreach to ‘Whistleblowers’ Takes Page From Main Justice Playbook”, Morvillo Abramowitz Grand Iason & Anello partners Robert J. Anello and Richard F. Albert analyze the Program, discussing how the Program works and what individuals with criminal exposure and their attorneys should understand when considering signing on with the government team.
