A New York SEC Whistleblower Law Office

Most people rarely (if ever) find themselves involved with, or having knowledge of, corporate or securities fraud. When they do, and decide they should tell someone about it, possibly as anSEC whistleblower, they often don’t know where or how to begin, or who to turn to for help.  A search on the Internet for a New York SEC whistleblower law office can be confusing and result in numerous hits for various law firms’ websites.

New York SEC whistleblower law officeMany law firms publicize themselves as a New York SEC whistleblower law office, in addition to many other types of law that may have nothing to do with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  To a non-lawyer, it can be hard to differentiate these firms’ focus, experience and expertise.  The Pickholz Law Offices does not claim to handle all kinds of legal matters, or even all kinds of whistleblower cases.  We focus on SEC whistleblowers and SEC cases specifically.

This is important, because the SEC is its own, distinct federal agency that has evolved and grown for over 80 years.  Since its creation in the 1930’s, the SEC has established its own rules, procedures, and culture that are unique to the SEC.  Therefore, an SEC whistleblower case is distinctly different than an IRS whistleblower case, False Claims Act (FCA) whistleblower case, etc.  Who qualifies as an SEC whistleblower?  What are the procedures for filing an SEC whistleblower complaint?  What kinds of information is the SEC interested in?  Even the rules that determine someone’s eligibility to receive an SEC whistleblower award are specific to the SEC.

The Pickholz Law Offices was founded with the specific goal of establishing a New York SEC whistleblower law office to handle the specific needs of SEC whistleblowers who are in need of an experienced SEC whistleblower lawyer.

Before creating The Pickholz Law Offices, its founder, Jason R. Pickholz, spent 16 years representing people who sought to talk with the SEC, occasionally voluntarily to let the SEC know about a problem at a company where they worked, other times as part of an ongoing SEC investigation.  Over that time, Mr. Pickholz developed an understanding of how the SEC operates, and how its lawyers work and think.  These insights proved invaluable when in 2010, a few months after the SEC whistleblower program was created, Mr. Pickholz founded our law firm for the purpose of helping SEC whistleblowers.

Since its creation, The Pickholz Law Offices has represented many SEC whistleblowers in cases involving financial firms and companies listed in the Fortune Top 10, Top 20, Top 50, Top 100, and Top 500.  We were one of the first law firms in the country to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client.  The Pickholz Law Offices was also the first SEC whistleblower law firm law firm ever to win an award for a client on appeal to the full Commission in Washington, D.C.  Inside Counsel magazine named this victory as one of the milestones of the SEC whistleblower program.
