If you have information about corporate fraud or securities violations, you probably also have a number of questions. Where should you report this information? Is this crime something that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) should know about? How can you make sure that you get this vital information to the right place, and in the correct way? Fortunately, there is a New York City SEC whistleblower law firm that can help: The Pickholz Law Offices.
In 2010, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Whistleblower Award Program was established to help individuals like you report information about corporate fraud and other securities violations. This program offers the chance for a monetary reward if the information that you provide helps the SEC to win a case. If the information that you give to the SEC helps it to bring a successful action in which it collects more than $1 million in monetary sanctions from the company or culpable individuals, you may be eligible to receive a mandatory reward from the SEC. This award must be between 10% – 30% of the amount that the SEC collects.
Although this potential reward is certainly encouraging for many whistleblowers including yourself, you may find that you are still unsure about how to proceed, or whether you or your information qualify for the program. This is where a New York City SEC whistleblower law firm like The Pickholz Law Offices can help.
The Pickholz Law Offices was one of the first law firms in the country to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client, and was the first law firm ever to win an award on appeal to the full Commission in Washington, D.C. Inside Counsel magazine named this unprecedented victory as one of the five key events in the history of the SEC whistleblower program.
