An Experienced NY Whistle blower Attorney You Can Trust
When looking for a NY whistle blower attorney, you probably want to find someone whose record you can trust. You need someone who has a history of representing clients in cases with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), leading the conversation about SEC whistleblowers, successfully representing SEC whistleblowers like you, and setting new precedents in the SEC whistleblower program.
If this sounds like the type of SEC NY whistle blower attorney you are looking for, start your search by learning about Jason R. Pickholz. Long before the SEC whistleblower program was established in 2010, Mr. Pickholz was representing clients in cases with the SEC. You can see examples of some of his many notable cases by clicking here.
Among his many speaking engagements, Mr. Pickholz has taught a course for Lawline on “Incentives and Protections for the Modern Whistleblower." Before the SEC’s Rules for its whistleblower program were even in place, he chaired a program before an international audience, speaking about “The SEC Whistleblower’s Perspective.” He was also invited by a leading university to give a lecture on SEC whistleblowers and white collar crime titled “When Bad Things Happen To Good People”.
Mr. Pickholz is also a co-author of the two-volume book Securities Crimes, published by Thomson Reuters. In 2013, he added a comprehensive chapter to the book on the SEC whistleblower program, which he updates annually. As of 2017, the whistleblower chapter spans 87 pages plus appendices.
In addition to his work leading the conversation about SEC whistleblowers and corporate crimes, Mr. Pickholz has also been successfully representing clients in the SEC whistleblower program. He was one of the first lawyers to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client.
He set precedent in the SEC whistleblower program, as the first attorney ever to convince the SEC to grant his client an award, despite the initial recommendation of its staff to deny any award. This was the first time in the history of the SEC whistleblower program that the Commission overruled an adverse Preliminary Determination by its Claims Review Staff. (See official SEC Award here.) Inside Counsel Magazine named this as one of the “Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program."
In recognition of his efforts and achievements, Mr. Pickholz was nominated and elected by his peers to be a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation, an honor limited to 1% of the 74,000 attorneys in the New York State Bar Association.
