Federal False Claims Act / Qui Tam Actions
In association with a major national law firm, we handle Federal False Claims Act cases, better known as "Qui Tam" actions. Qui Tam actions are cases brought on behalf of the federal government to recover monies paid by the federal government improperly due to false billing. Examples include timesheet fraud by government contractors, medical practices billing Medicare for services not performed, and other fraudulent billing practices to the government. The "Realtor" (the person bringing the case) must submit the case privately to the Department of Justice, and file under seal with the Court, before informing the alleged wrongdoer. The Realtor is permitted to keep a significant portion of the government's recovery.
