"I cannot stress enough the importance of seeking expert advice and guidance BEFORE you do anything, and that includes making the whistle-blower disclosure in the first place.

Whilst you have an obligation to make a disclosure in the public interest, you also have an obligation to yourself and your family by ensuring that those interests are properly protected in the event that you suffer retaliation, blacklisting or other detriment." - Financial Sector Whistle-blower
