New Securities Crimes Update Released
Thomson Reuters has just released a new annual update to Securities Crimes 2d, a two-volume book co-authored by Jason Pickholz.
Mr. Pickholz added Chapter 3, â€œThe SEC Whistleblower Program,â€ to the book in 2013 to provide a comprehensive resource for SEC whistleblower attorneys and SEC whistleblowers in this new and emerging area of law.Â The chapter contains knowledge and insights that Mr. Pickholz has gained as one of the first SEC whistleblower attorneys ever to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client, and as the first SEC whistleblower attorney ever to win an appeal of an adverse preliminary determination, combined with his experience gained over two decades representing witnesses and defendants before the SEC, DOJ, and US Attorney's Offices.
This 2014 release includes 69 new or updated pages to Chapter 3, revised to reflect recent developments in the SEC Whistleblower Program.
Among the many highlights of this new release are:
- Current developments in whistleblower confidentiality and anonymity under the SEC whistleblower program;
- The denial of an SEC whistleblower award claim for failing to properly follow the procedures set forth in the SEC whistleblower rules;
- The grant of an award of more than $400,000 to an SEC whistleblower who reported to the SEC after the company failed to address the issue internally (disclaimer: the award recipient was a client of The Pickholz Law Offices LLC);
- A sample of an actual confidentiality agreementÂ with the SEC under the SEC whistleblower program (redacted);
- and much more.
You can view the entire Table of Contents for Securities Crimes 2d on Thomson Reuters' website.
Securities Crimes 2d and the new 2014 update (Release # 1, November 2014) are available for purchase on-line fromÂ Thomson Reuters directly.
