Whistleblowing: Fighting Fraud Against the Government
The Attorneys of Goldberg Kohn are committed to helping you fight fraud against the government, recover as large a share of any recovery as possible, and protect your rights.
Every day, American taxpayers lose millions of dollars to fraudulent schemes against the government. But more and more members of the country's largest and most effective watchdog group – everyday Americans – are coming forward to report and put a stop to these fraudulent schemes. While these schemes take many forms, they all have at least one thing in common: they waste taxpayer dollars.
Fortunately, there are a growing number of federal, state and local laws – including the False Claims Act – designed to encourage people with knowledge of fraud against the government to come forward. These whistleblower laws often provide a financial reward, and a level of protection to those who do. A whistleblower law firm can help whistleblowers make use of these laws to stop fraud, maximize whistleblowers' rewards for coming forward, and protect whistleblowers throughout the process.
Goldberg Kohn's whistleblower lawyers have the experience, sophistication and resources required to take on even the largest corporate defendants on behalf of our clients. Goldberg Kohn will fight for you all the way to the finish line.
