NY SEC Whistleblower Program
For people living and working in NY SEC whistleblower program information can be hard to come by. That is why we have several pages on our website designed to help you better understand the SEC whistleblower program. Please feel free to click on any of the links on this page for more information.
Since you are searching for NY SEC whistleblower program information, one thing you should know is that, as of the date when this page was written (February 2017), NY does not have its own securities whistleblower award program. Not too long ago, State officials were discussing the possibility of creating an NY SEC whistleblower program that would be similar to the SEC whistleblower program, but nothing public has come of those discussions as of yet.
That is ok, because the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) is a federal agency that has jurisdiction nationwide. Regardless of where you live or work, you can provide the information that you have about corporate frauds or securities law violations to the SEC through the SEC whistleblower program.
Under the SEC whistleblower program, a whistleblower(s) must voluntarily provide original information to the SEC that either causes the SEC to open a new investigation or substantially assists an ongoing SEC investigation. If the SEC uses that information to bring a successful action in which it collects more than $1 million from the violators, the whistleblower(s) may be eligible to receive an SEC whistleblower award. The amount of the SEC whistleblower reward must be between 10% – 30% of the amount of money that the SEC collects from the violators.
The founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, Jason R. Pickholz, was one of the first lawyers to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client. He was also the first SEC whistleblower lawyer ever to win an award on appeal to the full Commission in Washington, D.C., a groundbreaking result that Inside Counsel magazine named as one of the milestones of the SEC whistleblower program.
As an SEC whistleblower attorney, Mr. Pickholz has represented employees, officers, directors, and others in SEC whistleblower cases involving financial institutions and public companies listed in the Fortune Top 10, Top 20, Top 50, Top 100, Top 500, and the Forbes Global 2000.
In recognition of his accomplishments, Mr. Pickholz was nominated and elected by his peers to be a Fellow of The New York Bar Foundation, an honor limited to just 1% of the 74,000 lawyers in the New York State Bar Association. You can find out more about Mr. Pickholz by clicking here.
