While many attorneys claim to be “whistleblower attorneys,” few have a proven track record in handling complex whistleblower actions. Our firm is led by an accomplished former federal prosecutor who investigated and prosecuted whistleblower claims on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice. With the help of whistleblowers he led investigations against some of the biggest organizations in the world, including multinational Wall Street banks, and his efforts led to billions of dollars in recoveries, including a $13 billion dollar settlement with JP Morgan, which, at the time, was the largest single defendant settlement in DOJ’s history.
We have now carried that experience to this firm, still focused on prosecuting corporate fraud, but now exclusively from the perspective of the whistleblower. Our team, consisting of a former prosecutor, former federal agents, and other accomplished attorneys, knows how to prosecute whistleblower actions from the inside and out. We know how to build a case and present it to the appropriate agency in the right way, which maximizes the chances that the government will intervene and assist in prosecuting the case. We are also smart, fearless, and relentless in litigating and trying cases against corporate giants. We beat them and their legal teams with aggressive, targeted case strategies, which has resulted in tens of millions of dollars in recoveries for our clients.
But more than our victories, we pride ourselves in being counselors and advocates for people who find themselves caught in a whistleblower situation. We know that those who encounter systemic wrongdoing at work often feel alone, intimidated, and at a loss as to how to proceed. They usually find themselves being bullied by their employers to stay silent or participate in the misconduct, and they are afraid of retaliation if they resist. We understand the difficult decision that potential whistleblowers must make, and the courage it takes to speak up. We also understand the strong protections and incentives that empower whistleblowers to come forward. Our number one priority at this firm is to listen to potential whistleblowers, advise them of the possible risks and rewards, help them make the right decision on how to proceed, and fight for them and their interests every step of the way.
