Whistleblower / Qui Tam
Unfortunately, some individuals and companies steal money from federal and state governments by filing fraudulent and false claims allowing them to obtain money to which they are not entitled. Likewise, our federal and state governments have limited resources with which to track down and prosecute these offenders. Therefore, the United States government, as well as the State of Texas, have adopted laws that entitle a whistleblower who brings fraud to the attention of the proper authorities to keep a portion of the proceeds ultimately recovered in what’s legally called a qui tam lawsuit.
