Whistleblowers/Qui Tam

It takes a lot of courage to step forward when you know fraud has been committed by a company. Paul LLP helps individuals who are ready to take that step by providing them with the guidance and expertise to expose corrupt practices. Individuals may feel pressured to keep quiet or be afraid of the repercussions, but it is important to remember that whistleblowers helped uncover the corruption at Enron and WorldCom. The fraudulent accounting practices found at these companies falsely inflated company earnings, eventually costing billions of dollars for innocent investors.

We help ensure the right steps are followed to protect whistleblowers from retaliation and receive possible compensation.

Qui Tam

Qui tam whistleblowers are those who have knowledge of fraud committed against federal or state governments. These commonly include Medicare and Medicaid fraud, defense contractor fraud and pharmaceutical fraud. Individuals who help bring these lawsuits may be eligible for a percentage of the money the government recovers from those who defraud it.
