False Claims / Whistleblower
L. Lin Wood, P.C. also focuses its trial skills and experience on the representation of whistleblowers in their fight against corporate fraud and waste of taxpayers’ dollars under the False Claims Act. Our firm has a proven and superlative track record in litigating False Claims Act cases, recovering over half a billion dollars on behalf of the United States taxpayers, including victories in cases in which the firm served as lead trial counsel for the Relator resulting in the largest Stark Law violation settlement in False Claims Act history, as well as serving as lead trial counsel for the Relators in the largest non-intervened Medicare fraud settlement in False Claims Act history.
Already filed a whistleblower case where the Department of Justice has declined to intervene? Gone are the days where non-intervened whistleblower cases are dismissed or settled for pennies on the dollar after a government declination. L. Lin Wood, P.C. offers the experience and determination needed to achieve justice against the odds. One need look no further than the result achieved by our firm in U.S. ex rel Vainer, et. al. v. Davita, Inc., et al., in which Mr. Wood, as lead counsel, secured a $450,000,000 settlement against the nation’s largest dialysis provider after the government declined to intervene. This figure represents the largest non-intervened Medicare fraud settlement in False Claims Act history.
