Newman & Shapiro
Newman & Shapiro specializes in representing whistleblowers in qui tam and other fraud cases. We work with our clients to expose fraud, to achieve justice, and to protect our clients from retaliation. On behalf of our clients, we bring cases under the False Claims Act and the whistleblower award programs of federal agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Internal Revenue Service. We handle cases involving all types of fraud, including pharmaceutical and health care fraud, education grant fraud, customs fraud, securities fraud and foreign bribery, and tax fraud.
We Are Successful
We will work with you to determine whether you have a potentially viable case and then to present that case to the government and to a court. We have the knowledge, experience, and resources to identify strong fraud cases, to work with the government to investigate the fraud, and, if necessary, to litigate cases through trial. We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we only collect fees if we are successful. Otherwise, it costs you nothing. If you think you have a False Claims Act or other whistleblower case and would like to speak with a member of our team, please contact us here or call us at 617-823-3217 for a free consultation.

Hire an Experienced
Whistleblower cases have unusual and detailed legal requirements because they must allege knowing fraud, not just mistakes. This means that the whistleblower lawyer must have the ability to make a clear and convincing presentation to the government with detailed evidence of fraud in order to have success in a qui tam case or other whistleblower matter.
Whistleblower and qui tam laws are also unique in that they allow individuals to bring forward claims of fraud on behalf of the federal or state government, and the whistleblower may be entitled to recover up to 30% of what the government recovers. Revealing this kind of information takes courage and an understanding of the process to be successful. The cases require thorough research of factual and legal issues. Having a skilled and experienced whistleblower lawyer on your side can make all the difference.
If you are aware of fraudulent billing or other deceptive wrongdoing by a person or entity – whether it is a healthcare organization, billing company, military contractor, pharmaceutical company or financial institution – we will guide you through the process, first to validate the claim and then to pursue it in accordance with all legal requirements.
