Houston Whistleblower / Qui Tam Attorney

You Can Trust Fibich, Leebron, Copeland & Briggs

"Qui tam" is an abbreviation for the Latin phrase "qui tam pro domino rege quam pro sic ipso in hoc parte sequitur." This translates to mean: "who as well for the king as for himself sues in this matter."

Under the False Claims Act, citizens have the right to bring a lawsuit against companies committing fraudulent acts against the government. It also states that so-called "whistleblowers" may be compensated through the lawsuit if it is successful. If you’re considering a claim, contact a Houston whistleblower claim lawyer at our firm today.

Types of whistleblower lawsuits may include, but are not limited to:

  • Healthcare fraud
  • Department of Defense fraud
  • Medicare / Medicaid fraud
  • Billing fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Criminal activity
  • Fraudulent pharmaceutical marketing

What Happens After Filing a Whistleblower Case?

After filing a qui tam case, the government has the opportunity to investigate and to decide whether or not to intervene. If the government becomes involved in the case, the whistleblower may obtain 15 to 25 percent of the final recovery - whereas if the government does not become involved he or she may obtain as much as 30 percent of the resulting award. An individual filing a lawsuit under the False Claims Act does so not for his or her own injuries, but on behalf of the United States government.
