An SEC Whistleblower Law Firm NYC Can Count On

The Pickholz Law Offices is an SEC whistleblower law firm NYC employees, customers, and residents can count on.  We are one of the first law firms ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client. (See official SEC Award here.)  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).

You have probably already seen many SEC whistleblower law firm NYC websites that make a lot of broad claims about how they can “maximize your reward”.  Some of those lawyers who market themselves with the phrase SEC Whistleblower Law Firm NYC may have told you all about awards that they say they have won for clients from other government agencies under other award programs.  But the SEC is a separate agency.  It has its own whistleblower program and its own rules, requirements, regulations, and procedures.  The kinds of things that the SEC is interested in, and the kinds of evidence that it is looking for, may be vastly different from those other agencies.

Are you comfortable hiring a law firm that assumes that all government agencies operate the same way?  If something goes wrong, are you willing to roll the dice that those other law firms will know what to do?  Or would you rather have a lawyer with decades of experience before the SEC and a law firm that has successfully handled that kind of situation, convinced the SEC to change its mind, and come out winning an award for its client?

The founder of our SEC whistleblower law firm, NYC based partner Jason R. Pickholz, has more than 20 years’ experience helping people provide information to the SEC.  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 that 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 have worked hard to make The Pickholz Law Offices an SEC whistleblower law firm NYC can put its trust in.  If you are considering reporting information about a fraud or securities violation to the SEC and would like more information about The Pickholz Law Offices or Mr. Pickholz, please click on the links on the right side of this page.
