More than ever before, whistleblowers are reporting concerns and prompting government investigations concerning possible violations of federal and state law, a trend has been driven in part by growing financial incentives.
Companies and their boards have relied on us to respond to allegations by whistleblowers and to help them devise and implement corporate whistleblower policies. Clients seek our counsel on whistleblower matters in a broad range of sectors—including defense, healthcare, technology and financial services.
“[The Firm] remains at
the forefront of litigation work and has a preeminent track record in
commercial, securities and white-collar criminal defense work”
Clients benefit from the government experience of many of our attorneys in the Firm’s Whistleblower/False Claims Act Practice, including former Assistant U.S. Attorneys and senior SEC enforcement attorneys. Clients rely on us to obtain favorable results in False Claims Act cases and investigations that began with a whistleblower complaint. Working closely with attorneys in the Firm’s Public Company Advisory Practice, our Whistleblower/False Claims Act attorneys also advise companies and their boards concerning a broad range of corporate governance issues involving whistleblowers and whistleblower policies.
