Experienced Whistleblower Qui Tam Attorneys
Sumner Schick is honored among Newsweek’s Premier Law Firms for 2019 for the firm’s representation of clients in whistleblower cases and for defense of companies involved in Qui Tam litigation.
Newsweek’s Premier Law Firms list recognizes law firms whose attorneys always place their clients’ needs first. The Premier Law Firms publisher states that “the best attorneys act decisively, using their wisdom and experience to navigate their clients through a challenging legal process often during periods of extreme stress and worry that can affect every aspect of their life.”
Newsweek adds, “These leading attorneys draw daily on their ingrained talent and the years of training and education that has furnished them with the skill, perception and know-how to react quickly and decisively when the pressure is on and the stakes are high. It is fair to say that law is the ultimate profession for critical and analytical thinkers.”
Sumner Schick is highly experienced in whistleblower and Qui Tam cases and has built a robust practice in this complex area of law. It started when the firm began representing some of the country’s largest companies in Qui Tam defense cases – representing Lockheed Martin, Affilliated Computer Services (ACS), and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC).
“We have defended some of the largest companies in the U.S. when they were facing Qui Tam litigation, including Lockheed Martin, ACS, CSC and DXC Technologies,” said Steve Sumner, Managing Partner and Founder of the firm. “Our deep experience with internal investigations and our ability to negotiate with government entities has allowed us to obtain dismissals for several of our Fortune 500 companies facing Qui Tam cases across multiple states, saving them hundreds of millions of dollars in litigation costs.”
Justin Sumner, a partner at the firm, added, “Whistleblower cases are an important part of our justice system. Whistleblowers who know an employer is committing fraud against the government have the opportunity and protection needed to save U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars, and are often rewarded with a share of the funds they help the government recover; we have helped clients obtain millions of dollars.”
