The False Claims Act is a federal statute under which whistleblowers, called relators, can report fraud against the government by filing a qui tam lawsuit. These lawsuits are generally based on insider information that the government may not have been able to discover on its own. In return for providing this vital information, and in some cases even standing in the shoes of the government and litigating the case themselves, the relator receives a percentage of any civil recovery. The False Claims Act attorneys at Bracker & Marcus LLC represent these relators. We ensure that their story is told in the most meaningful and convincing way so the government will intervene and hopefully settle their qui tam lawsuit. That is the False Claims Act, or Lincoln’s Law, in a nutshell. But for those who want a deeper understanding of the federal government’s primary tool in its ongoing fight against fraud, read on.
