Do You Need An SEC Whistleblower NY Attorney?

Do you have information about fraud or securities violations at the company where you work or at some other public company?  Are you wondering whether the Securities and Exchange Commission would be interested in hearing about what you have found, or whether you may be eligible to receive a monetary award from the SEC for providing your information to it?  If so, you most likely want to talk with an SEC whistleblower NY law firm.

Under the SEC’s Whistleblower Award Program, if one or more whistleblowers provide information to the SEC, and the SEC uses that information in bringing a successful action in which it collects more than $1 million from the wrongdoer(s), the SEC must give the whistleblower(s) an award of 10% - 30% of the amount that it collects.  There are a lot of complicated rules that you have to follow, though.  This is one reason why it probably is in your best interests to get an SEC whistleblower NY law firm on your side to help you from the start.

In addition to the rules that you have to follow, you have to submit your information to the SEC in writing.  But the SEC’s form has just a small box for you to describe everything you know about the fraud!  Are you confident enough with your writing skills that a handful of sentences in a box will be enough for you to explain the full scope of the problem, present all of your evidence, convince the SEC to believe that what you know about really happened, and persuade the SEC to launch a full-blown governmental investigation?  If that just made you hesitate for even a minute, you may want to consider getting the help of an established SEC whistleblower NY law firm that focuses on representing SEC whistleblowers.

At The Pickholz Law Offices, our SEC whistleblower clients include employees, officers, and directors of financial institutions, as well as employees of other public companies included in the Fortune Top 10, Top 20, Top 50, Top 100, and Top 500, and the Forbes Global 2000.  Not only was The Pickholz Law Offices one of the first law firms ever to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client, but we were also the first law firm ever to convince the SEC to grant a 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.

If you are considering becoming an SEC whistleblower and would like to speak with Mr. Pickholz, please call 347-746-1222.  Your initial conversation with Mr. Pickholz is free, up to one hour, and places you under no obligation to hire The Pickholz Law Offices after your initial consultation is complete.
