Erika A. Kelton tells the National Law Journal about how Phillips & Cohen has expanded over the last six years, and what first attracted her to representing whistleblowers.
“Phillips & Cohen’s Kelton remembers first becoming involved with a whistleblower suit when she worked on a case brought in 1988 against a company that overcharged the government for flight simulators for eight years. The case settled for $55.5 million, with the whistleblower splitting a $7.5 million award in 1992. Kelton was one year out of law school, and whistleblower cases were sparse then. But she said she was hooked.”
