  • If you want to read the SEC whistle blower provisions in the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, you can find them in Section 21F of that Act.  Section 21F has the title “Securities Whistleblower Incentives and Protection”.  You may also be able to find them by using the official citation, which is 15 U.S.C. § 78u-6.
  • The SEC whistle blower Rules can be found at 17 CFR Part 240, §240.21F-1 through § 240.21F-17.

Pickholz, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, was one of the first lawyers ever to win an SEC whistle blower reward for a client.  He was also the first lawyer ever to convince the SEC to grant his client an award over an initial decision by its staff to deny an award.  That unprecedented result was named as one of the “Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program” by Inside Counsel Magazine.  In recognition of Mr. Pickholz’s achievements, he was elected as a Fellow of The New York Bar Foundation, an honor limited to 1% of New York State attorneys.  You can find out more about Mr. Pickholz by clicking on the Biography icon and other icons on the right side of this page.
