“Unprecedented national results.”
– Los Angeles Daily Journal
For more than 25 years, the attorneys of Warren | Benson Law Group have distinguished themselves as national leaders in qui tam litigation, recovering more than half a billion dollars for our clients’ cases.
While many instances of fraud that result in qui tam prosecutions involve Medicare programs or defense contractors, there are numerous other areas of government contracts where fraud frequently occurs. Collectively, these areas account for hundreds of billions of dollars in federal government spending, meaning that the potential for fraud-related losses is significant.
Our firm has been at the center of major qui tam victories, including a $44 million recovery against telecom giants Worldcom, AT&T and Sprint for falsifying surcharges under federal long distance telephone service contracts. We also recovered $36 million from a major research university engaging in medical research grant fraud.
GSA Fraud, TAA Fraud And Other Areas Of Government Spending
Two of the largest areas in which government contracting fraud occurs relate to the furnishing of goods to the government by contractors. Companies can commit fraud by misrepresenting their compliance with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which requires that products sold to the Government be produced in fair trading partner countries. Secondly, fraud occurs when companies make omissions or misrepresentations to the General Services Administration (GSA) concerning “best price” and other terms of government contracts.
Other examples of fraud cases our firm handles include:
- Research programs
- Underpayment of royalties on government-leased land
- Public works projects and federal government construction
- Environmental programs
- Customs and transportation
- Telecom charges and long-distance phone fraud
- USF/Lifeline fraud
- Construction fraud
- Customs duties
- FEMA fraud
- Postal rates
- USAID and DEA fraud
- E-Rate program
