Attorney Hessam Parzivand celebrated a long awaited victory in a case that remained
on appeal for over two years. A Judge had ruled that his employee did not deserve
protection under the law he sued under, because he was located at Bagram Air Base
in Afghanistan. Parzivand appealed the decision and a panel of appellate judges
found that the law in question, Sarbanes-Oxley applied outside of the United States
to the whistleblower actions of his client. In achieving this victory, the firm
opened the door for protecting thousands of whistleblowers who work for publicly
traded companies abroad.
