The Whistleblower Law Firm NY Can Turn To

When you have important information, where do you turn?  Your answer may depend on the nature of the information, whether it is personal, professional, or otherwise.  If you find yourself in possession of information about a securities violation, corporate fraud, or other crime at a public company, whether you are an employee or came upon the information some other way, you may want to report your information to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) through its whistleblower award program.  If you have already done some research, you have probably come to realize that the SEC has a lot of rules for how you have to report your information, and a lot of requirements and factors that go into whether you will be eligible to receive a monetary award from the SEC, and how much of an award you might receive.  If you are considering reporting your information to the SEC, speaking with a whistleblower law firm NY residents and others can trust may be the best place for you to start.

At The Pickholz Law Offices, we have worked hard to build our reputation as a whistleblower law firm NY employees, customers, and others like you can count on.  The firm’s founder, Jason R. Pickholz, is one of the first lawyers ever to win an SEC whistleblower award for a client.  He is also the first lawyer to successfully convince the SEC to grant his client an award over an initial recommendation by its staff to deny any whistleblower reward. This was the first time in the history of the SEC Whistleblower Award Program that the Commission overruled an adverse Preliminary Determination by its Claims Review Staff.  (See official SEC Award here.)  Inside Counsel Magazine named this as one of the "Five milestones in the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward program".  For related articles please click here (Boston Business Journal) and here (NY Times).  In addition, Mr. Pickholz was elected to be a Fellow of the New York Bar Foundation, an honor limited to 1% of New York State attorneys.

Since 2010, the SEC Whistleblower Award Program has allowed individuals like you to bring forward information about corporate fraud or other securities violations, and offers them the possibility of receiving a monetary reward.  If you meet the SEC’s specific rules and requirements, and if the SEC collects over $1 million from the company or individual(s) at fault, the whistleblower(s) are entitled to receive a monetary reward from the SEC.  When an award is granted, it must amount to 10% to 30% of the money that the SEC collects based on the information that the whistleblower(s) provided.

The rules governing the SEC whistleblower program and who is eligible to receive an award are extensive.  With an attorney from a whistleblower law firm NY employees, residents, and others like you may have a better chance of satisfying those complicated requirements and receiving an award.
