At Cross Law Firm, S.C., our lawyers have experience protecting whistleblowers against retaliation and obtaining substantial recoveries on their behalves, such as numerous qui tam recoveries, including our recent settlement in a $25 million Federal False Claims Act case.
We understand that you are standing up for what is right. Our Milwaukee, Wisconsin whistleblower attorneys can help protect you against retaliation, renegotiate terms of your current position or negotiate a severance package if staying in your job is no longer possible.
Take Action Immediately — Call Us ASAP
In some cases, however, recovery is only possible if the information has not been raised before we file under seal, while in other cases recovery is only possible if the concern was raised to a supervisor prior to retaliation.
Time is of the essence in all whistleblower cases. Do not hesitate to contact our firm immediately so we can begin protecting your rights and pursuing appropriate action. The last thing we want is for you to miss your chance for substantial compensation.

Qui Tam Actions and the First-to-File Rule
Our firm has a particular focus on government contracts and government programs such as Medicaid/Medicare, defense, education and construction where the Federal False Claims Act may be involved. If you feel that a company is defrauding the federal government or the state of Wisconsin or the state of Illinois, we will need to file your concerns under seal on behalf of the government and represent you to obtain the maximum recovery for pursuing such claims against fraud in federal court. We also have experience handling high-profile whistleblower cases that involve the IRS or the SEC.
The "first-to-file" jurisdictional rule means that you should call our office immediately when you learn of any fraud related to state or federal billing, reimbursements, procurement, grants and loans, FDA approvals, or other government contracts. Our whistleblower claim attorneys can help you to file under seal and work with you to maintain your eligibility for any rewards there might be in the end.
Worried That You Were Involved?
Our Wisconsin lawyers can also help even if you feel as though you may have had a part in your company's wrongful actions. The law encourages people to come forward to point out illegal activity and provides certain protections for those who do.
