A Securities & SEC Whistleblower Law Firm
Founded by a career Securities & SEC Whistleblower Lawyer.
The Pickholz Law Offices is a law firm that handles securities cases, whether you are an SEC whistleblower and want to report a fraud to the SEC, or you need defending in an SEC or other securities investigation. After being a white collar partner at two national law firms, Jason R. Pickholz founded the The Pickholz Law Offices with the goal of creating an SEC whistleblower law firm and securities defense firm capable of providing the same high quality representation as the big firms, but with the personal attention to clients uniquely possible in a small firm.
The Pickholz Law Offices was one of the first law firms to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client. It was also the first SEC whistleblower law firm ever to successfully convince the Securities and Exchange Commission to grant an SEC whistleblower award over an initial recommendation by its Staff to deny any award. This was the first time in the history of the SEC whistleblower program that the Commission overruled an adverse Preliminary Determination by its Claims Review Staff. It is still one of only three times that the SEC has done so in the ten-year history of its whistleblower program.
Mr. Pickholz is a co-author of the two-volume book, Securities Crimes, published by leading legal publisher Thomson Reuters, and is the sole author of the book’s 128 page chapter on the SEC whistleblower program.
As an SEC whistleblower law firm, The Pickholz Law Offices’ whistleblower clients have included employees, officers, directors, and others in cases involving broker-dealers, investment advisors, financial institutions, and public companies listed in the Fortune Top 10, Top 20, Top 50, Top 100, Top 500, and the Forbes Global 2000.
In addition, since 1995 Mr. Pickholz has represented clients from across the United States, and from more than a dozen foreign countries, in securities enforcement investigations conducted by the SEC, CFTC, DOJ, FINRA, and other securities and financial regulators. Among his many notable cases, Mr. Pickholz represented a public company and its CEO in an SEC investigation related to the 2020 federal multi-agency COVID-19 Task Force; a company in a CFTC enforcement action involving cryptocurrency and binary options; a former US Senator in connection with an investigation into a public pension fund; and much more.
