The False Claims Act is our practice. The Bothwell Law Group knows the False Claims Act as well as anyone in the country. We review every judicial opinion that even mentions the False Claims Act the very day they become available. We correspond with False Claims Act attorneys around the country to stay current on unpublished opinions and legal trends. We know what has happened, what is happening, and what will happen to False Claims Act litigation in every court and circuit in this country. Only a small handful of firms in the country can claim to be 100% qui tam practices like ours.
Representing whistleblowers since 1996, Bothwell Law Group has always been a pioneer in the field of False Claims Act qui tam litigation. Bothwell Law Group has the expertise to be at the cutting edge of the law. Years ago, we were among the first in the country to recognize that Medicare fraud was recoverable under the False Claims Act–now a “garden variety” claim. We brought the first successful mortgage-fraud case under the False Claims Act. Because we practice solely in the whistleblower arena, we are able to devote 100% of our time to keeping up-to-speed on the latest developments in this fast-changing speciality, and are constantly looking for new and creative ways to use this flexible tool to recover taxpayer dollars from those who cheat the government.
In addition to our own cases, Bothwell Law Group is often called to consult with other lawyers on False Claims Act issues. The firm has a strong pro bono practice of advising less experienced attorneys, mentoring attorneys new to the field of False Claims Act litigation, and providing amicus briefs to nonprofit organizations like Taxpayers Against Fraud and for other practitioners. Bothwell Law Group is frequently asked to make presentations to national, state, and local groups, and is among only a handful of firms personally invited to meet with the Department of Justice regarding whistleblower relations.
