(including whistleblower rewards)

Qui tam lawsuits brought under the False Claims Act for fraud against the federal government have returned more than $15 billion to the government since Congress amended the False Claims Act in 1986, according to the U.S. Department of Justice. Whistleblower cases brought by Phillips & Cohen LLP and its attorneys have returned more than $5.3 billion. We have much more experience and far more success representing whistleblowers in qui tam cases than any other law firm.

Recoveries resulting from all qui tam and non-qui tam cases brought under the False Claims Act from 1986 to 2009 total $24.1 billion. Whistleblower rewards for qui tam cases exceed $2.5 billion.
