Qui Tam Law & Whistleblowers Claims
When you know that fraud against the government has taken place, you need to react carefully when bringing information forward and filing a lawsuit. We know how to present information to proper government authorities to obtain their cooperation and partnership in investigations, ultimately leading to a fair and just outcome for those involved. Few people realize that whistleblowers are oftentimes entitled to up to 25% of the award collected. Michael Scott Petty can help make sure you are properly compensated for bringing this information forward.
As citizens of the United States, you support and contribute to government programs because of a collective duty to provide for social needs that the private sector cannot or will not address. This duty should not be taken advantage of by organizations that seek to line their pockets by under-representing their tax obligations, committing fraud and otherwise stealing from the government.
Fortunately, the False Claims Act of 1863 provides a way for people who know about fraudulent activity against the government to come forward and help defend and uphold the public’s interests. Furthermore, federal and state whistleblower laws offer substantial rewards for people who come forward with information about fraud, giving them a percentage of the government’s recovery. Billions of dollars have been paid out in these kinds of cases, and whistleblowers are often entitled to up to 25% of the award.
