In those seven years, the Philadelphia office has recovered nearly $4 BILLION from drugmakers, according to an office summary submitted last week.This figure represents nearly a quarter of all similarly recovered funds by U.S. Attorneys offices nationwide.

If your just learning about the False Claims Act and qui tam matters, it is very important that you understand the respective roles of the government and the whistleblower’s attorney.As with the majority of government agencies, the US Attorney’s Office has to make economic decisions regarding the allocations of resources.Although I am sure that the US Attorneys would appreciate the opportunity to process every viable claim that came across their desk, the economic realities prevent such a situation.As a result, the attorney that you chose to bring your case may play a major role on the government’s interest in your filing.
At Egan Young, we understand the importance of working with the government and for the government to achieve the end goals – to prevent government fraud while rewarding those who bring it to the government’s attention.It is our devotion to assist the government with their investigation and prosecution that has led to the recovery of billions of dollars.
