New York SEC Whistleblower Attorney

What is a New York SEC Whistleblower Attorney?

Almost everyone knows what a lawyer is, but not everyone knows all the specific areas of law in which one could practice.  There are so many different types of lawyers out there, whether for fraud, divorce, medical malpractice, bankruptcy, child custody, real estate, and more.  Even within those categories, there are all kinds of sub-specialties. For example, one “securities lawyer” may file registration statements for a company with the SEC; a different securities lawyer might defend people in court who are being sued by the SEC.  Just because someone says that they are a securities lawyer, or an SEC defense lawyer, does not mean that they have real, extensive experience as an SEC whistleblower lawyer.  This is why, if you are thinking about becoming an SEC whistleblower, you probably want to focus on finding an experienced New York SEC whistleblower attorney.

I am not in NY.  Can a New York SEC Whistleblower Attorney still Help Me?

Yes.  Just because a New York SEC whistleblower attorney is in New York does not preclude them from appearing on your behalf before the SEC.  If you have questions as to whether a particular attorney can help you, you can always ask them that during your first conversation with them.

The Pickholz Law Offices represents and has represented many clients who live and work in States other than New York.  If you want to see some examples, please feel free to click Our Cases & Results.  To hear what some actual clients have said about us, you can go to our Testimonials page by clicking here.

About the Firm

In 2010, New York SEC whistleblower attorney Jason R. Pickholz left a partnership at a national law firm to form The Pickholz Law Offices.  He became one of the first lawyers ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client.  He was also the first lawyer ever to successfully convince the Securities and Exchange Commission to grant his client an SEC whistleblower award over an initial recommendation by its staff to deny any award.  As of October 2016 -- more than 6 years after the SEC whistleblower program was created -- the SEC has still granted only 2 appeals, one of them being Mr. Pickholz’s.

Mr. Pickholz is a co-author of the two-volume book Securities Crimes, published by leading legal publisher Thomson Reuters.  In 2013, he wrote and added to the book a comprehensive chapter on “The SEC Whistleblower Award Program”, which he updates annually.  In recognition of his achievements, in 2015 Mr. Pickholz was nominated by his peers and elected as a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation.  Being elected as a Fellow is an honor that is limited to just 1% of the 74,000 lawyers in the New York State Bar Association.  If you would like to find out more about Mr. Pickholz, you can click on the links to the right or click here.
