Martucci Discusses Confidentiality Agreement Policies and Securities Whistleblower Protection in Webcast

Shook Partner Bill Martucci, leader of the firm’s National Employment Litigation & Policy Practice, discusses recent SEC enforcement efforts in a January 13 webcast titled "Dodd-Frank Act's Rule 21F-7: Enforcement Actions Against Whistleblower Protection Violations."

The webcast alerts participants to potential problems and pitfalls related to Rule 21F-7, which forbids companies from taking any action that might hinder whistleblowers from disclosing potential securities law violations. Martucci reviews the SEC’s enforcement action against KBR Inc. in 2015 and covers how companies can ensure compliance in their practices and how to best manage risks. Martucci is joined on the podcast by Deborah Meshulam, partner at DLA Piper LLP.
