How An SEC Whistle Blower NY City Law Firm Can Help You

If you have found yourself in possession of important information about corporate or securities fraud at your company or elsewhere, chances are you are feeling isolated or uncertain about what to do.  You may have wondered who you should report your information to, what procedures you have to follow, how the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Whistleblower Award Program works, or whether the SEC will be interested in what you have uncovered.  Any of these questions lead naturally to the next one:  is there anyone who you can turn to for guidance and assistance?  The answer is yes, you can talk to an attorney at an SEC whistle blower NY City law firm.

The Pickholz Law Offices is an SEC whistle blower NY City law firm that was formed in 2010, just months after the Dodd-Frank Act created the SEC Whistleblower Award Program.  Jason R. Pickholz, the founder of the Firm, has been representing clients before the SEC for over two decades.  If you would like, you can call Mr. Pickholz and ask these or any other questions you may have about the SEC Whistleblower Award Program and what is involved in becoming an SEC whistle blower.  You initial telephone call with Mr. Pickholz of up to one hour is free of charge.  If you would like more information about Mr. Pickholz, please click here.

An SEC whistle blower NY City law firm can do more than just answer your questions, though.  An experienced SEC whistle blower attorney can also help you to figure out the best way to organize and present your information to the SEC, which is important in helping to convince the SEC to investigate your case.  An SEC whistle blower NY City law firm can interact with the SEC and its Staff on your behalf, guide you through the SEC whistle blower process, and work with you to prepare a strong application for an award should one become available in your case.  And while no one likes to think about a worst-case scenario, if the SEC’s Claims Review Staff denies your claim for an award, an SEC whistle blower NY City law firm can appeal that decision to the Commission in Washington, D.C. for you.

The Pickholz Law Offices was one of the first law firms ever to win an SEC whistle blower award for a client.  (See official SEC Award here.)  We were also the first law firm in the country ever to win an SEC whistle blower appeal to the Commission in Washington.  This groundbreaking result was named as one of the “Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program“ by Inside Counsel Magazine.  For a comprehensive article about that case, see here.  As of today (July 28, 2016), the Commission has granted only one other whistle blower appeal besides ours.
