Pickholz teaches course on SEC whistleblowers
On October 3, 2014, Jason Pickholz taught a live webinar on SEC whistleblowers entitled "Incentives and Protections for the Modern Whistleblower". During the program, Mr. Pickholz offers insights based upon his experience as one of the first SEC whistleblower lawyers to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client, and as the first SEC whistleblower attorney ever to win an appeal of a preliminary determination that had initially denied his client an award. Drawing upon his personal knowledge as one of the few lawyers to date to have successfully navigated the SEC's whistleblower program, Mr. Pickholz explains some of the requirements of the SEC whistleblower award program, including the process for seeking an SEC whistleblower reward, factors that may increase or decrease the amount of an SEC whistleblower award, some benefits and disadvantages of reporting internally for potential SEC whistleblowers, and offers some practical suggestions for SEC whistleblowers and SEC whistleblower attorneys.
