Qui Tam Whistleblower Attorneys of Hennig Ruiz
Federal law and the state laws of California protect individual citizens who engage in Qui Tam Whistleblower activities. If you have first-hand knowledge of fraud or corruption involving agencies or companies in either the private or public sectors, your rights are protected under the law when filing a lawsuit on behalf of the government. Furthermore, those who file Qui Tam lawsuits may be entitled to a financial reward under the special provisions of the False Claims Act.
But beware. Many possible whistleblower protection claims have very strict time limitations, ranging from as little as 30-days to 3 years. Contact our team of experienced Qui Tam Lawyers today to discuss your available options.
What are the possible rewards of whistleblowing?
Whistleblowers may be entitled to a substantial portion of the recovered funds under special provisions of the False Claims Act. These special provisions make it easier for ordinary taxpayers to hire reputable Whistleblower Attorneys for the purpose of filing a Qui Tam claim. The idea of rewarding the whistleblower by sharing a portion of the collected proceeds is the fundamental underlying principle of this important legislation. The U.S. Government wants to make it worthwhile for citizens to report these types of fraudulent activities and is willing to provide a financial reward for your noble and valiant efforts.
The Hennig Ruiz Law Firm believes in an honest, clean, and effective government. Greedy contractors and corrupt government employees should be held accountable for their actions. For these reasons, we generally represent our clients on a contingency-fee-only basis. This strategy means that we only get paid when we win the lawsuit.
What are your rights as a Qui Tam Whistleblower?
In some cases, a Qui Tam claim can be filed “under seal” or in secret. Filing in this manner allows the whistleblower to remain anonymous for a period of time and avoid possible retaliation by the employer. The only people who know that you are involved are your attorneys and the government. Eventually your identity will come to light, but this initial period of anonymity gives both you and the government time to review the Qui Tam lawsuits before making the accusations public. Whistleblowers can also take advantage of this extra time to perhaps build a new life away from the corrupt institution.
