False Claims Act, Whistleblower and Qui Tam Defense

BETTER GOVERNANCE Comes with diligence and sound controls

False Claims Act (FCA) enforcement and litigation has increased in recent years. Settlements and judgments involving alleged fraud against the government are routinely reaching billions of dollars each year, with a significant portion coming from suits filed under the FCA’s qui tam, or whistleblower, provisions. If you find yourself challenged with a qui tam case, we are here to help you navigate the complexities of the FCA minefield.

We are seasoned litigators who have the skills and resources to see these cases through to their ultimate conclusion. We conduct internal investigations, respond to government investigations and regularly defend lawsuits filed under the FCA.

FCA actions have been brought in nearly every industry, but are particularly prevalent with defense contractors, health care providers, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, financial institutions and companies that sell goods and services to the government. Our broad industry experience allows us to litigate strategically in each particular sector.

In addition to the federal FCA, 29 states and the District of Columbia have false claims act statutes they use to recover state dollars lost to alleged fraud. Our attorneys can help you address and defend state-level matters, including the “Diamond cases” in Illinois.
