Whistleblower Litigation Attorney in Mobile, AL
Skilled lawyer represents plaintiffs in federal and state lawsuits throughout Mobile
Whistleblower is the common term for a person, usually an employee, who reveals wrongdoing by a company in the form of fraud, corruption or other illegal activity. The U.S. government has several laws offering employees incentives to report their employer’s unlawful activity and providing protection from retaliation. The False Claims Act, passed during the Civil War, included a qui tam provision, which allows a private citizen with knowledge of fraud against the government to initiate a lawsuit and share in the government’s recovery of damages. Other statutes, such as The Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 and The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, have whistleblower provisions as well. Fuquay Law Firm represents whistleblowers in qui tam lawsuits. I also represent whistleblowers in claims for retaliation for whistleblowing activities. Fuquay Law Firm can provide robust representation that protects your rights.
Qui Tam lawsuits for False Claim Act violations
In a qui tam action under The False Claims Act, a person with knowledge of fraud against the government may file a lawsuit. Qui tam lawsuits often involve fraud in defense contracts, or fraudulent billing of Medicare and Medicaid. Given the government’s limited ability to audit all transactions with companies under government contracts, qui tam actions are essential for exposing waste and abuse. If you have pertinent information that could lead to a successful qui tam action, you need experienced representation from attorneys who know how to build a compelling case. On the other hand, if your company relies on government contracts, False Claim Act allegations can be ruinous. Fuquay Law Firm works meticulously to assemble the evidence to present the facts of your transactions in the best possible light.
