Our attorneys have a track record of success in helping whistleblowers hold fraudsters accountable for making false claims and stealing taxpayer money.1

Press coverage of a formidable whistleblower attorney

Our lead whistleblower attorney, Bill Nettles, is a former U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina. During his tenure, he led the district to become in the top 5% of districts in the nation for combating government fraud and collecting funds improperly procured from the government.1

Following are press releases from a few of the whistleblower cases in which Bill’s U. S. Attorney’s office intervened:

Bill brought his considerable experience and knowledge of whistleblower/qui tam cases to the private sector after serving two terms as a U.S. Attorney, and he continues to help whistleblowers seek to hold companies accountable for fraud against the government. The following Department of Justice press release highlights a case in which Bill Nettles and Fran Trapp, now our attorneys, represented whistleblowers and recovered millions on behalf of the U.S. government:1,4

Bill left the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 2016 to help private whistleblowers like you — but the positive effects of his historic tenure are still being felt and studied. The Federal Lawyer, the official magazine of the Federal Bar Association, recently profiled Bill as a visionary who used new methods, combined with a fierce dedication to helping others, in order to pursue true justice in South Carolina:

If you’re wondering if it’s a good idea to speak with a whistleblower lawyer about what you know, let us set the record straight.

  • Corporate ethics hotlines can be risky and may lead to termination. If you’ve already done this, call us immediately.
  • Your coworkers could be aware of the fraud – or complicit in it – and you should not talk to them about it.
  • The first claim to be filed under the False Claims Act can proceed – if you’re not first, you’re at a serious disadvantage and may get nothing (another reason not to speak to your coworkers about it).
  • A confidential discussion costs you a few minutes, but could save you time, stress, and money.
