Whistleblower claims, brought pursuant to the False Claims Act and other regulatory statutes, pose a significant and growing threat to corporations, institutions, and executives. Whistleblowers, working with the US DOJ, SEC, and State Attorneys General (AGs), are increasingly using statutes that incentivize reporting fraud, waste, and abuse in the government to extract large damage awards and civil penalties. Ellerman Enzinna Levy attorneys aggressively and effectively defend clients in False Claims Act and other whistleblower investigations, enforcement actions, civil litigation, and other related matters. Our experience encompasses allegations of fraud and abuse in a wide range of industries, including healthcare, defense contracting, securities, and financial institutions.
