Qui Tam Laws Protect Those Who Report Fraud Against The Government
To protect taxpayer dollars, the False Claims Act and similar state laws provide strong incentives for private citizens to report fraudulent claims for government funds. These citizen whistleblowers can pursue “qui tam” lawsuits to stop the fraud and recover public money that has been illegally obtained. Government prosecutors often play a major role in these lawsuits, which can result in significant compensation for the whistleblower.
The qui tam attorneys at Fox & Fox, S.C., have extensive experience bringing False Claims Act cases involving Medicare fraud and other deceptive practices by corporations, health care providers, universities and other public and private institutions. In cooperation with enforcement authorities, our lawyers have compiled a successful record of substantial financial recoveries for both taxpayers and our clients.
If you need aggressive, expert representation for a qui tam matter, contact us today online or at 800-416-5368 to arrange a consultation with a knowledgeable Chicago or Wisconsin False Claims Act lawyer. We bill most of our cases on a contingent fee basis, which means that clients do not have to pay us a legal fee unless and until we obtain results for them.
