An SEC Whistleblower Law Firm
Founded by a career SEC Whistleblower Lawyer & Securities Defense Lawyer.
The Pickholz Law Offices is a law firm that handles securities cases, whether you are an SEC whistleblower or you have received an SEC subpoena or FINRA notice. Jason R. Pickholz founded the Firm 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.
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 115 page chapter on the SEC whistleblower program. In recognition of his achievements, he was elected by his peers to be a Fellow of the New York State Bar Foundation, an honor that is granted to just 1% of the 74,000 lawyers in the New York State Bar Association.
As an SEC whistleblower law firm, The Pickholz Law Offices’ 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.
On the defense side, for over 24 years Mr. Pickholz has been representing clients from across the country who have been involved with investigations by the SEC, FINRA, and more.
