PHILADELPHIA, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Kang Haggerty LLC is pleased to announce the formation of The Whistleblower Advocates, a law office dedicated to representing clients with whistleblower (qui tam) claims in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and throughout New Jersey and the Delaware Valley.
The new law office will provide free legal consultations to educate clients about filing a qui tam lawsuit before blowing the whistle on fraudulent acts of an employer or other perpetrator. The Whistleblower Protection Act protects "any disclosure of information" by federal government employees that they "reasonably believes evidences" an activity constituting "a violation of law, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority or a substantial and specific danger to public health and safety." The federal False Claims Act provides incentives for whistleblowers to come forward by sharing a portion of recovery with the whistleblowers. Types of whistleblower fraud can include those in Healthcare, Pharmaceutical, Hospital, Construction, Education, Environmental, Mortgage/Financial, and Government Contracts.
The Whistleblower Advocates team consists of aggressive, knowledgeable qui tam lawyers that will seek to successfully guide you in representation, including:
