The attorneys on Baron & Budd’s whistleblower representation team have worked on behalf of clients in cases returning over $5.4 billion to federal and state agencies, achieving whistleblower recovery shares as high as 49%.
We understand that every whistleblower is unique – with personal reasons for doing the right thing, along with personal concerns and fears. We never forget that stepping forward to do what’s right can be very daunting and we never forget that we are working not just for a client, but for his or her family as well.
Our attorneys bring more than 60 years of combined experience investigating and prosecuting multiple precedent-setting fraud and abuse cases on behalf of whistleblowers. They are highly skilled at listening to a client’s story, evaluating the evidence provided, making an honest assessment of the merits of the case and determining how best to go forward.
To be effective at bringing whistleblower cases to the government, a lawyer must have an in-depth understanding of False Claims Act and other applicable statutes, up-to-date knowledge of current case law, strong investigative skills, a thorough understanding of government programs, the ability to write a compelling complaint under tight time constraints, and a reputation of credibility with government prosecutors. Our expertise in all of these areas is the reason why other lawyers refer their clients to Baron & Budd when they feel the individual may have a potential whistleblower case.
Baron & Budd’s whistleblower team has brought cases in 22 different U.S. District Courts, numerous state courts, the United States Tax Court and the SEC’s Enforcement Division. Our national network of local counsel, employment law affiliates and subject matter experts is extensive.
