New York Whistle Blower Attorney

Finding The New York Whistle Blower Attorney You Need

eagle carrying flag

When looking for a New York whistle blower attorney to present your case to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), don’t settle for the first name that comes across your path.  There are plenty of lawyers in the U.S. to choose from, but most are not experienced, dedicated SEC whistleblower lawyers.

As an SEC whistleblower, if the information you voluntarily provide to the Commission results in the SEC collecting at least $1 million from the wrongdoer(s), then you may be entitled to an SEC whistleblower award.  An SEC whistleblower reward must be for a minimum of 10%, and up to 30%, of the total collected from the wrongdoer(s).  Keep in mind, though, that there are numerous other requirements and qualifications for the SEC whistleblower program that must be met in order to be eligible to claim and receive an SEC whistleblower award.

SEC whistleblower rewards are intended to incentivize individuals to report securities violations, fraud, and crime in the workplace.  However, officially becoming an SEC whistleblower and receiving an SEC whistleblower award is not as simple as just filling out an initial form.

Beyond the SEC whistleblower rules, there are other aspects of being an SEC whistleblower that an SEC whistleblower lawyer can help you with.  If you want to remain anonymous even to the SEC, you are actually required to be represented by an SEC whistleblower attorney.

Mr. Jason R. Pickholz, New York Whistle Blower Attorney

Having a New York whistle blower attorney who has the familiarity and experience with whistleblower cases to guide you through the process can be a huge asset.  Jason R. Pickholz has extensive experience working with SEC whistleblowers and representing clients of all kinds who seek to interact with the SEC.

Mr. Pickholz, founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, was one of the first SEC whistleblower lawyers to ever win an award for a client.  He was also the first lawyer, 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 this victory as one of the “Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program”.  In addition, he is an author of a two-volume book on securities crimes, and was elected by his peers to serve as a Fellow of The New York Bar Foundation, an honor that is given to just 1% of lawyers in the New York State Bar Association.
