Our firm is nationally known for our skill and experience representing relators (whistleblowers) in whistleblower actions. We were the first firm in the country to obtain a recovery for exposing hospice care fraud in a nationwide case. We also obtained the first False Claims Act recovery based on violations of the Controlled Substance Act and Medicare Part D. We represent relators across the country, filing in all jurisdictions. If you believe you might have a whistleblower claim, we can help.
How Do Whistleblower Claims Work?
Individuals who are aware of government fraud, securities or commodities law violations, under or unreported corportate taxes or other illegal activities can blow the whistle on their employer, competitor or healthcare provider. In return, the government rewards whistleblowers with substantial monetary awards, often more than $1 million.
Federal law protects employees who file qui tam claims and other types of whistleblower claims from retaliation, and prohibits employers from harassing, discriminating or terminating an employee for bringing a violation forward. Through Cross Law Firm, S.C., you will be able to submit a sealed claim confidentially, without the fear of being reprimanded by your employer.
There are only a few attorneys who handle whistleblower cases. Our skill and experience handling these types of cases are respected nationally. We are often sought after by other firms to serve as co-counsel with them when they take on qui tam cases.
We Provide Individualized Attention For Every Client
Each job or profession has its own unique legal concerns. Whether you are a union employee involved in a labor dispute, an executive facing termination or corporate fraud, or a professional protecting your license to practice, we will tailor our representation to your unique situation.
With more than 40 years of legal experience, we are knowledgeable and strong advocates for our clients. We have extensive experience in a wide variety of cases, ranging from discrimination, non-compete agreements, workers' compensation, disability and whistleblower actions to business litigation and wage and hour claims, including on a class-wide basis. Whether your situation requires litigation or can instead be resolved through negotiation, we have the skill to get positive outcomes for you.
Commonsense Legal Representation That Gets Results
We know our clients should not have to work overtime to pay high legal bills. Our goal is to effectively and efficiently resolve issues, and often to obtain fee reimbursement for our clients from the other side.
