You Are not Alone: We Handle Whistleblower Cases
Whistleblower cases involve an individual or individuals who witness the fraudulent violation of a regulation, standard, or ethical obligation which they then disclose to an employer, a regulatory body, or an oversight or review authority. Unfortunately, it is often the case that the wrongdoing is considered acceptable behavior for that particular environment, which can make the decision to blow the whistle a difficult one. Whistleblowers often have to deal with peers who take the position that the wrongdoing should be accepted, or that reporting the wrongdoing would in itself be wrong. Consequently, whistleblowers can sometimes feel isolated, alone, and burdened by their knowledge of the wrongdoing.
Fortunately, with PHMY, you are NOT alone.
We are committed to combatting fraud and bringing whistleblower cases under the Federal False Claims Act. The False Claims Act, nicknamed the “Lincoln Law,” dates back to the Civil War and was enacted to combat the rampant fraud which pervaded state and federal government. The Act encourages patriotic citizens with knowledge of fraud to bring their whistleblower cases to court, and provides financial incentive for them to do so. It permits private citizens with evidence of certain types of fraud to file a lawsuit on behalf of the government to recoup stolen funds. Qui Tam suits offer whistleblowers the potential to receive up to 30% of the any recovery obtained by the government.
Of course, whistleblower cases are complex affairs requiring experienced legal counsel. PHMY represents a variety of whistleblower clients, and we have unique resources to help your case, including a broad range of contacts with numerous federal agencies, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Texas Attorney General’s Office. We also maintain an extensive network of alliances with successful law firms that represent whistleblowers throughout the United States. At PHMY, we have more than 15 years of experience with Qui Tam litigation.
