|Description||The False Claims Act is a federal statute where whistleblowers, called relators, can report fraud against the government by filing a qui tam lawsuit. These lawsuits are usually based on insider information that the government may not have been able to find on its own. In return for delivering this vital information, and in some cases even standing in the shoes of the government and litigating the case themselves, the relator gets a percentage of any civil recovery.
The False Claims Act attorneys at Bracker & Marcus LLC represent these relators. We ensure that their story is told in the most significant and convincing way so the government will intervene and hopefully settle their qui tam lawsuit.
That is the False Claims Act, or Lincoln’s Law, in a nutshell. But for those who want a deeper understanding of the federal government’s main tool in its ongoing fight against fraud, read on.
Whistleblowers and Attorneys Both Bring Vital Experience
Our False Claims Act attorneys concentrate in the art of preparing qui tam cases. To do this, we work closely with our clients, using our expertise and experience to draw out every piece of relevant information that could help the government perform its investigation.
However, familiarity with the False Claims Act is only part of the battle. A government fraud attorney is most useful when they have experience with the particular type of fraud being alleged, as well as the rules and regulations at issue. Not only are we able to concentrate our efforts on what matters most, but our prior experiences enable us to uncover claims that our clients were not even aware of.
But we also rely greatly on our clients’ training and understanding of their fields. They have been immersed in their profession for years, sometimes decades, and have real-world experience that lawyers do not. They lived the fraud, saw it firsthand, talked with the people conspiring to defraud the government, and dealt with the patients or customers who were victimized as a result.
Lawyers should certainly not take for granted the value that relators bring to this process.
