Presenting the False Claims Act to French Law Students

Steven Cohen, of counsel to HSPRD, and HSPRD partner Juliet Berger-White presented “Whistleblowing in the United States” to a group of law students visiting from France’s Universite de Cergy-Pontoise School of Law on June 22, 2015.

In collaboration with the Cohen Law Group, Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd. has developed a national practice representing whistleblower clients in the fast growing, highly specialized area of law known as qui tam or false claims litigation. We represent private-citizen whistleblowers across the country to report fraud against government programs through cases brought under federal and state false claims laws. Our attorneys have represented whistleblower clients in a wide range of cases addressing government contract fraud, Medicare and Medicaid medical provider fraud, pharmaceutical company pricing fraud, and financial institution and banking fraud.

Steven Cohen, who is of counsel to HSPRD, is one of the most experienced qui tam/false claims attorneys in the nation. He has worked with a network of federal and state prosecutors and government investigators in some of the largest whistleblower-initiated government prosecutions brought under the false claims laws, resulting in total recoveries in excess of $700 million, including $100 million in awards to clients
