Pickholz authors 60+ page chapter on â€œThe SEC Whistleblower Programâ€
Securities Crimes 2d is a two-volume book published by Thomson Reuters with updates annually. Chapter 3, titled "The SEC Whistleblower Program," was added to the book in 2013 by Jason Pickholz to provide a comprehensive resource to this new and emerging area of law. Chapter 3 is a practical guide for SEC whistleblower attorneys and an informational guide for SEC whistleblowers themselves. The chapter contains personal knowledge and insights that Mr. Pickholz has gained as one of the first SEC whistleblower lawyers ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client, and as the first SEC whistleblower attorney ever to win an appeal of an adverse preliminary determination.
Among the subjects covered in Chapter 3 are: SEC whistleblower reward prerequisites, the steps to report a fraud to the SEC through the whistleblower program, multiple SEC whistleblowers, claiming and preserving SEC whistleblower confidentiality or anonymity, SEC whistleblower award claims, factors that may increase the amount of an SEC whistleblower award, factors that may decrease the amount of an SEC whistleblower reward, award determinations and appeals, SEC whistleblower protection and anti-retaliation provisions, and other topics.
Securities Crimes 2d can be purchased on-line from Thomson Reuters directly.
