Doug Cloud Law also represents whistleblowers that are attempting to protect the United States Government from fraud pursuant to the False Claims Act. These claims allege that medical providers such as physicians, hospitals, nursing homes or associated laboratories or healthcare facilities who have illegally or improperly defrauded the United States or various state governments by charging the United States or individual states for medical care that Medicare or Medicaid beneficiaries did not receive. A successful False Claims Act offers the whistle blowing client the opportunity to share in any recovery received by the government. This can result in awards to clients worth millions of dollars.

Our Firm Represents whistleblowers in a variety of fields, such as the following:

Whistleblowers alleging that a private individual or corporation has committed fraud on the federal government by submitting "false claims" for payment by the government. These cases often  involve health care providers defrauding the government by submitting false claims or false statements in support of claims for payment by the government's Medicare and Medicaid programs.  

Whistleblowers alleging military equipment contractors of defrauding the federal government. These "false claims" cases commonly involve military contractors who have failed in some way to perform their government contracts and have concealed their nonperformance by the use of fraudulent statements or who have simply delivered to the government less  than was promised.

Whistleblowers alleging price fixing by bidders seeking the award of federal government building and construction contracts.

Whistleblowers, typically employees of financial services institutions, coming forward with evidence of violations of federal securities or financial regulation laws.

Whistleblowers alleging federal tax fraud by individuals or corporations.

Whistleblowers  alleging violations of the Commodity Exchange Act, typically by financial services institutions. This would typically involve whistleblowers involved in the futures and commodity markets who are alleging fraud, price fixing or other illegal acts by their employer or others.
