Do You Qualify For The NYC SEC Whistleblower Program?

Have you heard people talk about the NYC SEC whistleblower program?  What they are talking about may not be limited to NYC.  The SEC whistleblower program is a national program set up by the U.S. Congress to give out monetary SEC whistleblower awards to people who report corporate frauds or securities crimes to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Have you been wondering whether or not you may qualify to be a part of the NYC SEC whistleblower program or to receive a potential SEC whistleblower award?  The Pickholz Law Offices is an SEC whistleblower law firm that is not afraid of having educated and informed clients.  We want to help you start understanding the information you need to make the important decision of becoming an SEC whistleblower.

The NYC SEC whistleblower program gives individuals like you the chance to bring forward information that they have about corporate fraud or other securities violations.  A few examples of the types of frauds and violations investigated by the SEC include:

  • Accounting, and books and records frauds, at public companies and financial institutions
  • Rebate frauds at public companies
  • Bribery of or improper payments made to foreign officials (FCPA violations)
  • Fraudulent conduct involving municipal securities
  • Frauds involving public pension plans
  • Insider trading
  • Ponzi schemes and Pyramid schemes
  • Manipulation of a security’s price or volume
  • …and much more

If you have information about any of these types of frauds, you may be eligible to participate in the SEC whistleblower program.  If you are unsure about whether a fraud or violation that you have discovered is eligible under the program, you might want to check with an experienced SEC whistleblower attorney.

Jason R. Pickholz, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, was one of the first SEC whistleblower lawyers ever to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client under the Dodd-Frank Act.  (See official SEC Award here.)

He was also the first SEC whistleblower lawyer ever to convince the SEC to grant his client an SEC whistleblower award over an initial decision by its staff to deny an award.  This groundbreaking result was named as of the five milestones of the SEC whistleblower program by Inside Counsel Magazine.  For other related articles click here (Boston Business Journal) and here (NY Times).
