An SEC Whistleblower Law Firm New York City Can Turn To

The Pickholz Law Offices has worked hard to establish itself as an SEC whistleblower law firm New York City employees, customers, and residents can turn to for help in reporting information about frauds and securities violations to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  We are one of the first law firms ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client.  We are also the first law firm ever to convince the SEC to grant someone an SEC whistleblower award over an initial decision by its staff to deny an award.  This groundbreaking result was named as one of the “Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program“ by Inside Counsel Magazine.  For related articles click here (Boston Business Journal) and here (NY Times).  We hope you will agree that The Pickholz Law Offices is an SEC whistleblower law firm New York City can have faith in.

If you have been searching the Internet for SEC Whistleblower Law Firm New York City, you have probably seen results for a lot of law firm websites making broad claims that they can win an SEC whistleblower award for you.  Other law firms may have tried to persuade you that they have had cases before other government agencies, while avoiding mentioning how much success they have had representing clients in front of the SEC itself.

But the SEC is its own separate agency, with its own separate rules and procedures that it has developed for over 80 years, and with its own separate whistleblower program.  There are a lot of requirements and rules that must be satisfied in order to be eligible to receive an SEC whistleblower award.  The SEC is not identical to other government agencies.  Whether the SEC chooses to follow up on a whistleblower’s information, how it conducts its investigations, and whether it decides to grant someone an SEC whistleblower award, is not governed by the rules that apply to other government agencies, or event by the rules that apply to a courtroom litigation.

The founder of our SEC whistleblower law firm, New York City based partner Jason R. Pickholz, has spent his career of more than 20 years helping people provide information to the SEC, since well before the SEC’s reward program was created.  Sometimes those people had already decided that they wanted to report a fraud or securities violation to the SEC.  Other times, the SEC asked them to come in and talk about something it was already investigating.

In recognition of Mr. Pickholz’s accomplishments, in 2015 he was elected as a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation.  Fellows are nominated by peers and elected by the Fellows’ Board of Directors.  “Fellows represent one percent of the New York State Bar Association membership.  Being nominated and elected is a notable achievement,” explains the Chair of the Fellows, “Being a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation is an honor”.

We understand that when looking for an SEC whistleblower law firm New York City employees, customers, and residents have a lot of options.  If you are looking for a law firm that has real experience representing clients before the SEC -- and that has had actual success guiding its clients through the SEC whistleblower program -- we hope that you will give us a call.
