    Famed Brazilian lawyer Bruno Fagali is known to write very interesting articles for his website blog. Recently, he wrote about the new packaging and labeling laws concerning cigarettes and other tobacco products. Here is a breakdown of what he wrote in this particular piece.

    On May 25, two new stringent rules related to ANVISA became applicable to all tobacco sales in Brazil. The cigarettes and tobacco products, according to Bruno Fagali, will no longer be able to market themselves with “cool” pictures which entice the consumer to try or to keep using their product. In fact, Bruno Fagali writes that the mere advertising of cigarettes will be reduced to almost nothing.

    Special and strongly-worded health warnings, written by government agencies, will be mandatorily appearing on each and every package of tobacco product which is sold within the country of Brazil. Fagali states this is nothing really all that new as similar laws have existed in the United States and in Canada for quite some time now.

    In an interesting spin on established marketing laws, the tobacco companies have a handful of pre-determined designs that they are allowed to use. According to poder360.com.br, they must keep track of which ones they use and for how long they use each design but are allowed to use them in rotating schedules if so desired.

    Hopefully, the powerful attorney Bruno Fagali will continue to make such interesting and informative articles. While it is clear he is quite busy with his “regular” job of defending and upholding the very laws he cherishes, it is still comforting to know that he is out there a few times a month delivering insightful scribes and sharing with the rest of the people his wisdom which he has gleaned throughout the years. Here’s to many more articles to come.

    SEC Whistleblower Advocate is a website devoted to issues related to SEC whistleblowers and their advocates. The website is for the use of attorneys and individuals who suddenly find themselves in the middle of a difficult and highly complex area of law. The “Program Overview” explains the rights of whistleblowers under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. This Act provides employment protection and financial incentives for individuals who report suspected violations of the federal securities laws. The website is published by Labaton Sucharow, LLP, a United States law firm focused entirely on protecting and advocating for SEC whistleblowers.

    The website editor and program leader is Jordan A. Thomas, an attorney who helped to draft the legislation and rules for the Whistleblower Program while he was an Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel in the SEC Division of Enforcement. The Dodd-Frank Act has three important features: the SEC is required to pay whistleblowers 10-30% of the monetary sanctions collected when sanctions exceed $1 million, plus other awards; retaliation by employers is forbidden when the program rules are followed; and whistleblowers can report anonymously if they are represented by an SEC whistleblower attorney. The Whistleblower Program set out by the Dodd-Frank Act was carefully crafted to encourage compliance with the National Securities Exchange Act of 1934, but the program must be carefully followed for the protections to remain in place.

    The Corporate Ethics section of the website begins with an important discussion: ethics violations occur because corporations do not follow the rules. In this section, videos are provided that discuss ethics questions such as corporate integrity; how far corporations must go to be in compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act; answers to frequently asked questions about the SEC whistleblower program; weighing the dangers and benefits of whistleblowing; “insider tips” for individuals contemplating becoming a whistleblower; and a call to action to promote corporate integrity and follow the requirements of SEC laws and regulations.

    The Resources section of the website contains videos, podcasts, and webinars related to the Whistleblower Program and to Corporate Ethics, and rules and regulations of the SEC related to whistleblowing, including materials created by Labaton Sucharow for whistleblowers. The SEC Sanctions Database is intended to provide information about six of the most common SEC violations. Labaton Sucharow provides detailed analysis of SEC enforcement actions.
