False claims Act Cases

Charleston Federal False Claims Act Lawyer

It is estimated that the federal government loses hundreds of billions of dollars every year to fraud. One of the ways the government attempts to combat fraud is through the False Claims Act. This law has a number of provisions intended to reduce fraud. According to one such provision, individuals who “blow the whistle” on fraud are entitled to recover a percentage of the money the government recovers in a lawsuit.

These lawsuits are known as qui tam lawsuits. In qui tam lawsuits, any person bringing information to the government about fraud is known as a relator. If you have independently acquired knowledge about government fraud, it is critical to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. At Harris and Huge LLC, we have substantial experience representing clients in these matters. Our Federal False Claims Act attorneys, located in Charleston, SC, are ready to help you through the legal process.
