Whistleblower & Qui Tam Representations

Schertler Onorato Mead & Sears represents whistleblowers seeking rewards through federal agency whistleblower programs as well as in qui tam representations under the False Claims Act.

We have represented claimants with information that would qualify them for monetary awards under the whistleblower programs of both the Internal Revenue Service and the Securities and Exchange Commission. We represented the whistleblower who provided information to the IRS qualifying him for a reward of $104 million.

Under the False Claims Act, we have litigated qui tam lawsuits on behalf of our clients, including a lawsuit involving health care entities in which the federal government intervened and ultimately obtained a $24.5 million settlement.

In all of our whistleblower and qui tam representations, we assist our clients in evaluating the merits of potential claims and in pursuing rewards through the most advantageous avenues available to them within agencies and/or the courts.
