An SEC Whistleblower Law Firm
Founded by an SEC Whistleblower Lawyer
Jason R. Pickholz founded The Pickholz Law Offices with the goal of creating an SEC whistleblower 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.
Mr. Pickholz was one of the first lawyers ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client. He was also the first lawyer to successfully convince the Securities and Exchange Commission to grant his client 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 also 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 87 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 72,000 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 20, Top 50, Top 100, Top 500, and the Forbes Global 2000.
