The Origin Of The SEC Whistleblower Program Chapter

The SEC whistleblower program was created as part of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010.

SEC whistle blower program chapterBy late 2012, it had become apparent that there was no single, authoritative source for potential SEC whistleblowers or SEC whistleblower law firms to turn to for information about the SEC whistleblower program.

To fill that void, Mr. Pickholz wrote a brand new, in-depth SEC whistleblower program chapter for his book.  The SEC whistleblower program chapter first appeared in print in 2013.

Every year since then, Mr. Pickholz has expanded and updated the SEC whistleblower program chapter to include new information about SEC orders and pronouncements, court decisions, and other developments derived from Mr. Pickholz’s ongoing experience as an SEC whistleblower attorney.
