The lawyers at PWHD are experienced in all facets of whistleblower litigation (also known as qui tam litigation) and have represented clients in the recovery of millions of dollars for the government.
We understand how difficult it can be to make the decision to do the right thing. Our firm has provided aggressive representation and superior resources to whistleblowers for well over a decade.
We are experienced in all facets of whistleblower litigation, including retaliation claims, and have represented clients whose cases have led to some of the largest government settlements in the history of the False Claims Act. Our firm’s cases have led to total government recoveries in excess of $3.75 billion. Most of clients have not come forward out of a desire for financial gain, but instead because a crime was being committed and those crimes often put the lives, health or safety of others at risk. Still, it is important to know that, as a whistleblower, your compensation for alerting the government of fraud can be significant. You may be entitled to up to 30% of the government recovery, including treble damages. Our accomplished whistleblower litigation attorneys can help you understand all of your rights as a whistleblower. We will show you the way forward and will stand with you through the process from beginning to end. To share in the recovery of a whistleblower case, you must be the first to file. Don’t wait. Call us at (800) 898-5192 for your free and confidential consultation.

We represented one of several relators in the 2009 recovery against Pfizer that was one of the largest False Claims Act recoveries in the nation’s history. When our client came to the firm, she was seriously considering accepting a severance package worth approximately $40,000. We advised our client to forego accepting the severance package, and instead to bring a claim under the False Claims Act. As a result, she received a very significant seven figure whistleblower award and helped put an end to the fraud.
We represented a whistleblower in a recovery against Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC and Reckitt Benckiser LLC (collectively “Reckitt”), wherein in 2019 the companies agreed to pay $1.4 billion to resolve allegations made by the United State DOJ, the FCC, and several whistleblower lawsuits that Reckitt defrauded Medicare, Medicaid and other government funded healthcare programs in connection with its marketing practices for Suboxone tablet and Suboxone film, both of which are opioid dependence treatment regimens.
We represented a whistleblower against Indivior Inc., wherein in 2020 the company agreed to pay a total of $600 million to the government to resolve criminal and civil liability associated with the marketing of the opioid-addiction-treatment drug Suboxone. $300 million of the settlement was paid to resolve the civil claims that the marketing of Suboxone caused false claims to be submitted to government health care programs.
