One of these veteran whistleblower law firms is Phillips & Cohen, founded in 1988 by John Phillips . Phillips worked closely with Congress to pass the False Claims Act and brought the first whistleblower lawsuit after the law passed, against an eye clinic for submitting false Medicare claims. Currently, the firm has 23 attorneys in Washington, DC and San Francisco dedicated to whistleblower cases.
“We are one of just a few law firms that focus their practices solely on representing whistleblowers,” [Phillips & Cohen partner Claire] Sylvia told the Guardian.
