False claims litigation, under either federal or state law, is a complex, highly specialized area of law. Because qui tam cases are often filed against some of the largest corporations in America, the defendants usually have a team of accomplished lawyers on their side. In addition, the government prosecutors who work on these cases typically have many years of experience with false claims cases. To further complicate matters, seemingly small procedural errors could ultimately bar whistleblowers from receiving a portion of the government’s recovery.
The attorneys at Behn & Wyetzner are used to working with this challenging reality. We have been prosecuting qui tam cases for more than twenty years and have extensive experience with each step of the process—everything from the initial evaluation to the subsequent investigation and prosecution. We have developed close working relationships with government investigators and prosecutors, and we are usually successful in getting the government to intervene in our cases.
Beyond our expertise in this area, we value our relationships with referring counsel. We recognize that referring counsel can decide whether to play a more or less active role in the government’s investigation, and we respect this decision. If you are interested in learning more about how we might be able to assist you in prosecuting your qui tam case, please feel free to contact us for more information.
