Attorney Mwangi is now accepting cases brought by whistleblowers. “Whistleblowers” are typically company employees or contractors with information about their company’s fraudulent activity. Whistleblowers report fraud committed against government entities. Examples of whistleblower cases include Medicare fraud, customs duty fraud, pharmaceutical fraud and major tax evasion.
In order to uncover fraud and abuse, both Massachusetts and the federal government have passed laws granting company insiders incentives to expose fraud at their companies. These laws also contain provisions protecting the insiders from retaliation.
In Massachusetts, an attorney can file what is known as a qui tam civil lawsuit on behalf of the whistleblower and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Frequently, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office will intervene and prosecute the claim after the attorney files the initial paperwork. The whistleblower is entitled to a certain percentage of any recovered funds.
