I am a Halliburton Whistleblower. I fought them for 9 years and (eventually) won. Ask Me Anything.
UPDATE: Thanks for all the questions. I have to hop off for a bit but will pop in to answer any left over questions as much as I can. Feel free to continue to post and I will do my best to get to them. Again, thank you so much! ...
I’m Tony Menendez, a CPA and a corporate whistleblower. A decade ago, I was Halliburton’s Director of Technical Accounting and I witnessed some highly questionable accounting and auditing practices at Halliburton. After being told to “save it for the subpoena,” I blew the whistle. Although, Halliburton’s retaliation was swift, my journey through the legal process and the fight for my rights was not. I trusted the system and paid the price. After four years and losing at every stage in the legal process, I ran out of attorneys. With nothing left to lose, I spent several years representing myself. Now, nine years after blowing the whistle, I have prevailed and it appears that I am in the final throes of my battle with Halliburton. (Joe Ahmad, my attorney, is accompanying me.)
Ask me anything and while there certainly is no one-size-fits-all "right answers," I will do my best to provide answers based on my experience.
