While there are a lot of whistleblower attorneys out there, not all of them are what you are looking for if you are trying to find a whistleblower attorney New York City can trust.  When it comes to SEC whistleblower cases, many attorneys simply don’t have the experience.  They may have experience with other kinds of whistleblower cases, but the SEC process is particularly complicated and nuanced:  having real, first-hand experience with this type of case is important.  Even with regard to those attorneys who have worked with SEC whistleblowers, how many of them have both decades of experience representing actual clients in SEC investigations, and also demonstrated success with the SEC whistleblower program?

The SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) can provide an SEC whistleblower award to any individual who comes forward with information about securities fraud or corporate crime at a public company.  If eligible, and if all of the rules and requirements are satisfied, a whistleblower(s) may be granted an award of 10% - 30% of the total amount collected by the SEC from the violators as a result of the information that the whistleblower(s) provided.

But while the SEC receives thousands of whistleblower tips each year, far fewer have been granted an SEC whistleblower reward.  This is one reason why it may be prudent to consult with a whistleblower attorney New York City can trust before submitting your information to the SEC.

Jason R. Pickholz, the founder of The Pickholz Law Offices, is a whistleblower attorney New York City can trust, who has decades of experience actually representing people in SEC investigations, and who has won a first-of-its-kind SEC whistleblower award for a client.

Mr. Pickholz was not only one of the first lawyers to win an SEC whistleblower reward for a client.  He was also the first SEC whistleblower lawyerever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client on appeal.  His unprecedented victory in that case has been named one of the five milestones of the SEC whistleblower program.

Mr. Pickholz is the author of a two-volume book on securities crimes, published by leading legal publisher Thomson Reuters.  In recognition of his accomplishments, he was elected by his peers to be a Fellow of The New York Bar Foundation, an honor given to just 1% of the lawyers in the New York State Bar Association.  For more about Mr. Pickholz, please click here.
