Whistleblower and Qui Tam Cases

We help fraud victims and company insiders file confidential whistleblower reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).   Whistleblowers whose reports result in a successful prosecution may receive a reward if the financial regulators recover more than $1 million as a result of original information provided by the whistleblower.  In most cases corporate insiders who blow the whistle are entitled to protection from retaliation by the company.  Both U.S. citizens and foreign residents may file whistleblower claims and receive rewards if they are aware of illegal conduct by U.S. based companies.

 We have prepared and filed whistleblower claims involving the following types of conduct:

 

  • Securities and commodities fraud (including ongoing conduct) under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank).

  • Claims relating to accounting and financial fraud by publicly traded corporations based on the knowledge of corporate insiders under Dodd Frank.

  • Unlicensed trading activities involving securities or commodities sales under Dodd Frank.

  • Bribery of foreign officials by a public company under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

  • Federal “Qui Tam” cases under the False Claims Act and the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 (FERA)

  • Heath care fraud cases under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).

  • Tax fraud informant cases with the Internal Revenue Service's whistleblower program.

 

Our legal team has many years of experience assisting clients with the investigation of these cases, navigating the complex statutory frameworks that govern reporting, maintaining confidentiality, protecting our clients against retaliation and, where appropriate, filing lawsuits to recover the award.  We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients in these cases and have the resources, experience, and expertise to investigate these cases and to represent our clients from the claims process through trial.

In most cases we will file these claims on a contingency basis, which means that our clients don’t pay anything unless we recover on their behalf.
