Federal Qui Tam Lawsuits
Pursuing Compensation For Federal Whistleblowers
Employees who expose fraud, corruption or other unlawful gain at the expense of the federal government are protected from employer reprisal. However, it is not always feasible for those workers to continue in their job or move to another federal agency.
The U.S. government acknowledges the sacrifices that whistleblowers make and the fact that they are not always treated as heroes by their managers and co-workers. A qui tam lawsuit rewards whistleblowers with a portion of any funds recovered by federal prosecutors in civil actions against the wrongdoers.
The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., represents federal employee or private sector whistleblowers in bringing qui tam actions. We ensure that the government holds up its end of the bargain.

Qui tam cases may take several years from the investigation through litigation or negotiated settlement. The government may abandon the case if it cannot prove criminal conduct or criminal intent. If the qui tam action is successful, the payoff can be substantial. Only the first party to bring usable evidence of criminal activity to the attention of federal prosecutors can be named in the lawsuit. Whistleblowers commonly receive 15 or 20 percent of the total recovered, and these cases commonly involve millions of dollars in fraudulent proceeds and/or hundreds of thousands of dollars in civil fines.
