False Claims Act / Qui Tam Actions
Stember Cohn & Davidson-Welling handles False Claims Act (Qui Tam) cases. This federal law allows individuals with evidence of fraud against the federal (and sometimes state and local) government to file suit on the government’s behalf, and protects them from retaliation for reports of wrongdoing. These cases, which are often brought by employees of health care providers and government contractors, may involve false or inflated billing or kickbacks. The whistleblower in a successful qui tam case may receive a portion of the money recovered from the corporate wrongdoer.
