Simmons Hanly Conroy attorneys have the experience to handle your qui tam litigation. An individual (often referred to as “whistleblower” or “relator”) who knows of fraud committed against the government may file a lawsuit to recover the losses caused by the fraud.
Qui tam is an abbreviated version of the Latin phrase “Qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso,” which means: “He who sues on behalf of the King, as well as for Himself.” It is a provision of the False Claims Act that provides significant financial incentives to a whistleblower to retain counsel to prosecute these lawsuits and fight government fraud.
