Practice Areas: Whistleblower

The Firm has been a pioneer in the whistleblower arena, having handled such matters well before passage of Sarbanes-Oxley.  On the prosecution side, the Firm has worked closely with the US Attorney’s Office to investigate and formulate claims and a strategy for recovery.  This insight has proven invaluable in assisting clients on the defense side when confronted with whistleblower investigations or litigations.
