Whistleblower Spotlight & Interviews

At Constantine Cannon, we believe that whistleblowers matter.  Whistleblowers are brave people who can’t stay silent.  They stand up for what is right, and they make a difference.   On this page, we share stories about the importance of whistleblowers, and about whistleblowers who inspire us.

In addition, you can watch this informative video on the importance of whistleblower rewards created by Taxpayers Against Fraud, the country’s leading non-profit group dedicated to educating whistleblowers on their rights and protections.
