A Securities & SEC Whistleblower Law Firm

Founded by a career White Collar & SEC Whistleblower Attorney. The Pickholz Law Offices (the Firm) is a law firm that handles white collar financial and securities cases. We represent SEC whistleblowers, IRS whistleblowers, and CFTC whistleblowers. We also defend clients in SEC, CFTC, and other governmental or regulatory investigations.

After being a white collar partner at two BigLaw national law firms, Jason Pickholz founded The Pickholz Law Offices as both an IRS, CFTC, and SEC whistleblower law firm and a securities defense law 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.

A CFTC & IRS Whistleblower Law Firm

In addition to SEC whistleblowers, the Pickholz Law Offices represents CFTC and IRS whistleblowers. For example, the Firm has helped clients to report such things as corporate and individual tax fraud to the IRS, and commodities fraud to the CFTC.

As an SEC, CFTC, and IRS whistleblower law firm, The Pickholz Law Offices’ clients have included employees, officers, directors, counterparties, victims, 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.

A White Collar & Securities Defense Law Firm

The Firm also defends clients in white collar and securities enforcement proceedings. Since 1995, Mr. Pickholz has represented clients from across the United States, and from more than a dozen foreign countries, in white collar enforcement investigations conducted by the SEC, CFTC, DOJ, FINRA, and other securities and financial regulators.

Among his many notable defense cases, Mr. Pickholz represented a public blockchain and non-fungible token (NFT) company in an SEC investigation; a company in a CFTC enforcement lawsuit involving cryptocurrency and binary options; a public biotech company and its CEO in an SEC investigation related to the federal multi-agency COVID-19 Task Force; a former US Senator in connection with an investigation into a public pension fund; and much more.

Mr. Pickholz is a co-author of the two-volume book Securities Crimes, published by leading legal publisher Thomson Reuters. In recognition of his many achievements, Mr. Pickholz was nominated and elected by his peers to be a Fellow of The New York State Bar Foundation, a professional honor that is granted to just 1% of the 70,000+ lawyers in the New York State Bar Association.
