The Pickholz Law Offices: A Name Among NY SEC Whistleblower Law Firms

Eagle carrying flag

The Pickholz Law Offices LLC (the “Firm”) is a known name among NY SEC whistleblower law firms.  The SEC whistleblower program first began in 2010.  A few months later, Jason R. Pickholz left a partnership at a national law firm to create The Pickholz Law Offices.

An SEC whistleblower lawyer, his goal was to create an SEC whistleblower law firm that would focus on providing SEC whistleblowers with big-firm quality legal representation, combined with the dedication, communication, understanding, and hands-on attention uniquely possible at a dedicated boutique.

Since that time, the Firm has represented employees, officers, and others in SEC whistleblower cases involving financial institutions, securities and investment firms, and public companies listed in the Fortune Top 20, Top 50, Top 100, Top 500, and the Forbes Global 2000.

The Pickholz Law Offices was the first law firm ever to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client on appeal to the Commission in Washington, D.C. Inside Counsel magazine recognized this never-seen-before result as one of the five milestones of the SEC whistleblower program.

How Do You Determine The Reputations Of Various NY SEC Whistleblower Law Firms?

In assessing NY SEC whistleblower law firms, potential whistleblowers may want to know how those firms are viewed by others.  On-line review sites may have their results skewed by friends swapping “top” reviews with each other, lawyers “stuffing the ballot box” for colleagues in their firms, or by other means.  So how can someone get an objective assessment of the reputations of various NY SEC whistleblower law firms?

One way might be to look at whether other members of the legal community refer clients to those firms.  When someone asks a lawyer or other professional for a recommendation, that lawyer or professional’s own reputation may be on the line if the law firm that he or she recommends turns out to be a dud.

The Pickholz Law Offices’ clients have come from all over.  Some have been referred to the Firm by:

  • other lawyers (see article here);
  • law school professors (see Client Testimonial #9);
  • internationally-syndicated journalists (see Client Testimonial #10);
  • as well as by former clients of the Firm, through the Firm’s website, or those who found the Firm through other means.
