Whistleblower and False Claims Act

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's lawyers are very smart, commercial and able to tailor their advice to the client.”
