New York City Whistle Blower Lawyer

If you are looking for someone to help you provide information a securities fraud or violation to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), you are probably in need of a New York City whistle blower lawyer. If so, you will want an attorney who has extensive experience representing individuals in SEC cases, and who understands what SEC whistleblowers go through. Why? Because the SEC whistleblower program has its own, specific rules regarding eligibility for an SEC whistleblower award. Failure to adhere to those rules could exclude someone from receiving an SEC whistleblower reward.

Beyond the SEC’s rules and procedures, there are other aspects of being an SEC whistleblower that a New York City whistle blower lawyer can help you with, such as maintaining your privacy. While the SEC takes confidentiality seriously, if you want to remain truly anonymous even to the SEC, the SEC rules require you to be represented by an SEC whistleblower attorney.

Some other ways in which a New York City whistle blower lawyer can help include:

  • writing your complaint to the SEC;
  • communicating with the SEC Staff on your behalf;
  • assisting you during meetings and telephone calls with the SEC;
  • drafting your written application for an SEC whistleblower award; and
  • appealing an initial award decision if you disagree with or are denied an award.

While hiring an SEC whistleblower law firm is not a requirement to be an SEC whistle blower, the aforementioned are just some of the reasons why you may want to consider hiring The Pickholz Law Offices to represent you.

As one of the first law firms to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client, The Pickholz Law Offices is well-acquainted with what is required to manage an SEC whistle blower case from start to finish.

Additionally, The Pickholz Law Offices was the first law firm ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client on appeal, after the SEC’s staff initially decided to deny an award. Inside Counsel Magazine named our victory as one of the five milestones of the SEC whistleblower program.
