Many of our attorneys maintain strong working relationships with the New York Attorney General’s Office, the Southern and Eastern United States Attorneys’ Offices, and the SEC.

Important Resources for Potential Whistleblowers:
The New York False Claims Act
The Federal False Claims Act (FCA) is the foundation of the U.S. whistleblower reward system. Most states have enacted their own versions of the FCA, including New York. These statutes seek to reward whistleblowers for bringing fraudsters to justice. If you are successful in pursuing a whistleblower claim under the FCA or the New York False Claims Act, you may qualify to receive a monetary award. By filing a whistleblower suit, also known as a qui tam action, you may receive up to 30 percent of the total amount the government recovers.
The New York False Claims Act is unique in that it also allows whistleblowers to bring suits based on violations of the state’s tax laws, provided that the violator’s annual income exceeds $1 million. The New York FCA allows whistleblowers, also known as relators, to bring suits on behalf of New York counties, cities, towns, school districts, and other local government entities than have been defrauded.
