Monetary Rewards for Whistleblowers –
Wherever you Live

 

Stephen Kohn appears on C-SPAN

Rewarding your courage

The United States has the strongest and most effective whistleblower laws in the world, with more successful cases than every other country combined. The most innovative feature of these qui tam laws is that citizens who report crime and misconduct can qualify for large monetary rewards.

 

You can receive a reward regardless of where you live and where you maintain your citizenship. Thousands of people in more than 80 countries in all regions have reported critical information to US authorities – and they have received tens of millions of dollars in rewards for their contributions.

 

Under most laws, you can receive 10-30 percent of the fines and penalties collected by US authorities. One program, on ocean pollution, pays whistleblowers up to 50 percent.

How You Can Benefit

If your information leads to a successful prosecution or enforcement action, U.S. laws guarantee you will be compensated. These rewards a way of saying “Thank you” for taking brave and ethical action to report misconduct in the public interest while others remain silent.

 
 

We are experts at harnessing reward laws for your personal and financial well-being

US reward laws – such as the Dodd-Frank Act, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, False Claims Act, and IRS whistleblower law – are the most successful anti-corruption programs ever put into action. US laws cover the most serious and widespread types of crime in the world today: tax evasion, company fraud, bank misconduct, official bribery, money laundering, procurement scams, air and water pollution, and illegal logging.

 

If you are a whistleblower, it is important for you to follow the proper procedures in order to receive a reward. You need a highly experienced qui tam whistleblower lawyer who knows the intricacies of these laws, and how they can be used for your benefit and the benefit of society.
