Qui Tam Representation

Our seasoned Qui Tam attorneys specialize in representing private individuals, known as “relators,” in Qui Tam lawsuits against entities committing fraud against the government. With our comprehensive legal support, relators may receive up to 30% of the recovery in successful lawsuits.

Our role in representing individuals in qui tam actions is deeply intertwined with the intricacies of the False Claims Act, a cornerstone legislation in the fight against governmental fraud.

Qui Tam/False Claims Act

Throughout the years, enforcement activity has been significantly increased under the civil and criminal False Claim Acts, both by direct government action and by private qui tam relators.

Qui tam lawsuits incentivize whistleblowers who attempt to defend the federal government by holding individuals and corporations accountable for fraud.

Those whistleblowers who bring to light others attempting to defraud the government are entitled to a percentage of the funds the government recovers in the case.

In the fiscal year 2022, the United States actively recovered $2.2 billion through False Claims Act settlements and judgments. Lawsuits filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act, pursued by the government or whistleblowers, accounted for over $1.9 billion of this recovery.

Protecting You from Whistleblower Retaliation

The False Claims Act, as well as other federal laws, seeks to provide job protection to legitimate whistleblowers who put themselves at risk when reporting potential fraud of government agencies and are entitled to a share of the funds the government may recover.

However, without a better understanding of the legal implications involved with such legislation, many whistleblowers without representation can find themselves in difficult situations. 

Experience Matters

Our team consists of internationally recognized trial lawyers who regularly assist clients who blow the whistle on fraud and abuse, and many of our attorneys previously served as government prosecutors before coming to private practice.

This specialized knowledge allows our attorneys to develop a tailor-made strategy to work with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) as it investigates the fraud and, after that, whether the DOJ decides to intervene or not, in which case the attorneys at FPG may represent you to pursue the claim yourself.

Our firm’s deep understanding of the Act’s civil and criminal aspects enables us to represent whistleblowers effectively.
