Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.
When we think about lawyers in the Compliance context, a number come to mind. Those who represent us in the event of government action taking place, those who help us with investigations, those who help us objectively evaluate our Compliance program, those who give us advice on a point of law when we need it, those who are appointed to us as monitors and so on. One area that doesn’t get a lot of attention is the role of the lawyer as whistleblower representative. This Great Women in Compliance Podcast sheds some light on this advocate role by way of our interview with Mary Inman who heads up the International Whistleblower Practice at Constantine Cannon.
In her legal practice, Inman represented the high profile Theranos whistleblower Tyler Schulz, among others. We draw on this fascinating experience to bring you Part 1 of a two-part series on whistleblowing starting with Inman’s perspective as an advocate for whistleblowers and ending with the view from the other side of the fence as the whistleblower with Erika Cheung, another of the Theranos whistleblowers.
Inman, who is the epitome of effervescence, does some level setting for us by explaining the role of a whistleblower lawyer and why a whistleblower might want one. She gives her view on whether there are any differences between male and female whistleblowers based on her extensive experience and as someone who has spent her entire career in private practice, shares a tip on avoiding burnout.
