Get Started With A NY SEC Whistleblower Attorney

Have you found yourself in possession of information about a securities violation in your workplace?  Have you discovered evidence of corporate fraud or securities violations?  If so, you may be thinking that you should bring this information forward to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  But even if you have the information and the conviction to do the right thing, you may still be wondering how to find a NY SEC whistleblower attorney who can not only help you through this process, but who will also understand and care about what you are going through.

At The Pickholz Law Offices, we commend you for your courage and determination to do the right thing.  Although it may feel intimidating to possess and especially to report information like yours, the reality is that the SEC depends upon whistleblowers like you to help identify and put a stop to fraudulent actions.  In addition, assuming all other requirements are met, if a whistleblower(s) provides information to the SEC that assists the SEC in bringing a successful action, in which it collects more than $1 million from the wrongdoer(s), the SEC is required to give the whistleblower(s) a monetary award of 10% - 30% of the amount that it collects.

As a NY SEC whistleblower attorney, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, Jason R. Pickholz, has extensive experience helping individuals like you.  Mr. Pickholz was one of the first lawyers to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client.  (See official SEC Award here.)  He was also the first NY SEC whistleblower attorney -- in fact, the first attorney anywhere -- ever to convince the SEC to grant his client an SEC whistleblower award over an initial decision by its staff to deny an award.  This first-of-its-kind result was named as one of the “Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program” by Inside Counsel Magazine.  For related articles click here (Boston Business Journal) and here (NY Times).

Mr. Pickholz is one of the authors of the two-volume book Securities Crimes.  He is also the sole author of the book’s comprehensive chapter on the SEC Whistleblower Award Program, which he added to the book in 2013.  His SEC whistleblower clients have included employees of public companies listed in the Fortune Top 50, Top 100, and Top 500, and the Forbes Global 2000, as well as employees, officers, and directors of financial institutions.

In recognition of Mr. Pickholz’s achievements, he was elected to be a Fellow of The New York Bar Foundation, an honor limited to just 1% of New York State attorneys.
