Georgia Business Litigation Attorney Helps Organizations Handle Whistleblowers
Skilled business lawyer defends clients in the Marietta area against federal False Claims Act and Dodd-Frank Act suits
For more than 150 years, the U.S. government has offered employees incentives to report their employers' fraudulent activity, starting with the False Claims Act and continuing through Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank. Standing up against genuine fraud is entirely laudable, but some whistleblower claims arise where disgruntled employees make specious assertions against their employers, reflecting a skewed view of complex transactions executed in good faith. If you face whistleblower allegations in the Marietta area or Georgia, an experienced business litigation attorney at The Gunn Law Firm LLC can provide a robust defense that minimizes the consequences to your company.
Proven litigator defends clients in qui tam lawsuits for False Claim Act violations
The False Claims Act allows persons with knowledge of fraud against the government to file as a plaintiff on behalf of the government and share in the government’s recovery of funds. These qui tam actions often involve fraud in defense contracts or fraudulent billing of Medicare and Medicaid. If your firm depends on government contracts for a substantial part of its business, such allegations can be ruinous. The Gunn Law Firm LLC works closely with your company to build a case that presents the facts of your transactions in the best possible light.

- Insider trading
- False or misleading statements
- Failure to file required reports with the SEC
