Championing Corporate Accountability: Phyllis Sullivan’s Courageous Stand.

August 16, 2023. Seattle, WA

We at Bloom Law PLLC are unwavering advocates for justice and integrity within the corporate realm. Our client, Phyllis Santistevan-Sullivan, embodies these values as she fearlessly navigates the intricate terrain of accountability and transparency. A former business leader at TransDigm Group, Phyllis Sullivan’s steadfast commitment to principled practices led her to a crossroads where she chose to confront alleged improprieties head-on.


Phyllis Sullivan’s journey commenced within the corridors of AvtechTyee, a subsidiary of TransDigm. As the finance chief, she embarked on a mission to ensure ethical financial reporting, raising critical questions about the company’s aggressive accounting maneuvers. These concerns, deeply rooted in her dedication to ethical conduct, set in motion a series of events that would shape her path as a whistleblower.

Her tenure at AvtechTyee was abruptly curtailed—a consequence she attributes to her resolute whistleblowing efforts. Fueled by her unwavering commitment to accountability, she has taken her battle to the federal court, filing a lawsuit that underscores the gravity of her allegations against TransDigm.

In partnership with our co-counsel at the law firm of Eight & Sand, our legal team is resolute in upholding her rights, amplifying her voice, and shedding light on the urgent need for transparent corporate practices. The lawsuit she has initiated serves as both a testament to her unwavering resolve and a rallying cry for a corporate landscape defined by ethical responsibility and fairness.

Together, we can foster an environment where ethical conduct prevails, and those who dare to question improprieties are empowered to do so without fear.
