There are lots of whistle blower attorneys out there, at lots of different law firms. But take a closer look. Is the lawyer you are looking at a focused SEC whistle blower NY City attorney, or is he/she trying to be a jack-of-all-trades? Is his/her law firm truly a dedicated SEC whistleblower law firm, or does it have lots of departments in all kinds of areas?
The SEC whistleblower program was created as part of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010. Before then, there was no comprehensive SEC whistleblower program. Six years is not a long time. Think about this: many major law firms will not even consider promoting an associate to a partner until he/she has been working as a lawyer for at least 8 years or more.
With that in mind, shouldn’t you be asking yourself how much experience the attorney or law firm you are looking at had representing clients in cases with the SEC before 2010? Do you want an SEC whistle blower NY City attorney who decided to jump on the SEC bandwagon after 2010, only after he/she saw the awards that could be won and got stars in his/her eyes? Or do you want an SEC whistle blower NY City attorney who has represented clients in cases with the SEC throughout his career, since long before the SEC whistleblower program was even conceived?
As of 2017, Jason R. Pickholz, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices LLC, has spent 22 years representing clients in cases with the SEC, since long before the SEC whistleblower program was ever created. Sometimes those clients wanted to go in and talk to the SEC about information they had; other times the SEC asked them to come in as part of an ongoing investigation. Over those many years, Mr. Pickholz developed extensive knowledge and experience helping clients in SEC cases involving securities fraud, accounting fraud, books and records fraud, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), stock offering fraud, insider trading, ponzi schemes, trading in unregistered securities, stock options backdating, anti-money laundering, pay-to-play, municipal securities, hedge funds, bank conversions, securities and commodities swaps, international securities and banking investigations, market timing, after hours trading, trading ahead, interpositioning, government contract fraud, and other areas.

In 2010, Mr. Pickholz left a partnership at a national law firm to create The Pickholz Law Offices LLC, with the goal of using his extensive knowledge and experience to help people like you in SEC whistleblower cases. Since founding the Firm, Mr. Pickholz has represented SEC whistleblowers in cases involving public companies listed in the Fortune Top 20, 50, 100, and 500, as well as in cases involving broker dealers, investment advisors, private equity firms, crowd funding businesses, and more.
Mr. Pickholz was one of the first lawyers to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client. He was also the first SEC whistle blower NY City 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.
