Description

A whistleblower or qui tam action can provide financial rewards to individuals who have information that a company/individual has committed fraud. The primary statutes under which this relief may be sought are the federal and state False Claims Acts (“FCAs”), which are not specific to any particular type of fraud. In addition to the FCAs, there are other statutes which apply to tax fraud, securities fraud, and in California, fraud on private insurance companies.

This practical Course will provide attorneys with an overview of the whistleblower laws and will provide the knowledge and skills to be able to recognize a potential whistleblower case, understand the basics of filing a case and know how to, or who to team up with to, evaluate and pursue a viable whistleblower case.
