What areas are not in the False Claims Act?
The government’s efforts to fight fraud are not all lumped under the false claims act. For example, tax fraud is specifically excluded from the federal false claims act but there is a separate IRS whistleblower body of law that can be invoked for private whistleblowers now to bring issues forward. There are also securities fraud laws that now the securities exchange commission has statutory authority under those.
We listen compassionately, we listen intently and every week I refer clients to other lawyers or recommend how they can find a lawyer if they don’t know someone in their city that can actually focus on what they are bringing forward if it is not something we handle.
