Phillips & Cohen has experience with qui tam lawsuits brought under the False Claims involving contractor fraud by U.S. contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A qui tam contractor fraud case brought on behalf of a whistleblower by Phillips & Cohen resulted in the largest government recovery in a fraud case involving war-zone contractors in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Louis Berger Group paid $69.3 million to the government to settle the whistleblower case, contractual disputes and a criminal fine.
For contractor fraud cases that involve classified information, Phillips & Cohen attorneys have received security clearances to enable us to work with the U.S. Department of Justice — a factor that distinguishes Phillips & Cohen from most, if not all, other whistleblower law firms.
Fraud by contractors who are supposed to provide support for military, reconstruction and other U.S. operations in Iraq and Afghanistan has cost U.S. taxpayers tens of billions of dollars. If you are aware of fraud by a government contractor and would like to discuss your potential case with an attorney, please contact us.
