Qui Tam Litigation
Questions? Call Lawyer Gary Jackson Today.
Private citizens can play a vital role as whistleblowers in bringing wrongdoing to light and organizations or businesses to justice. It is often the private citizen who is privy to possible ill intent or negligence by a company, rather than an external investigative body. This is why federal and state laws permit an individual is to bring a whistleblower, or “qui tam,” lawsuit against the guilty party on the government’s behalf. One such law is the False Claims Act. Many cases under the False Claims Act are for Medicare and Medicaid Fraud, or fraud by defense contractors. If you have knowledge of fraudulent activity which has damaged the United States, you may bring a “qui tam” lawsuit.
Our lawyers have significant experience and can help citizens pursue justice and put an end to this sort of wrongdoing.

Whether you are looking to file a whistleblower claim on the federal or state level, the process tends to be quite similar:
- An individual who is aware of fraud is allowed to bring forth a claim on behalf of the defrauded party.
- The Attorney General’s office may choose to pursue the claim, but is not required to do so.
- Should the government elect not to proceed with the claim, the party who brought the claim may continue to pursue it on the government’s behalf. This could potentially result in the receipt of a higher percentage of the final recovery.
