Why Waters & Kraus
Our attorneys fight fraud with qui tam intelligence.
It takes courage for a whistleblower to speak out against fraud in Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal or state programs. At Waters & Kraus, our attorneys have the in-depth qui tam experience and steadfast resolve to stand with you through the complexities of false claims litigation — no matter how long it takes. The points of difference listed below are just a few of the reasons why clients choose Waters & Kraus to champion their cases.
National reach and experience in the qui tam arena
Our seasoned lawyers fight for whistleblowers all across the country, drawing upon our experience with U.S. Attorneys' Offices and working with local counsel as needed to prepare your case for government intervention or trial. A number of Waters & Kraus attorneys are licensed in multiple states, and our familiarity with state and federal courts is a key advantage for qui tam relators.
Partner involvement in every case
Unlike some large plaintiffs' firms, we believe that every client and every case deserves the hands-on involvement of a Waters & Kraus partner. When you choose Waters & Kraus, the partner in charge of your case heads up a team of in-house researchers, associate attorneys, paralegals, and allied professionals. Together, we work toward a single goal — to build the strongest case possible. Our thoroughness, coupled with our litigation expertise, makes us a formidable force for justice.
A commitment to seeing your case through
In qui tam cases, the gold standard of success is for the government to intervene. If the government declines, however, the whistleblower may choose to litigate. And in either case, you can count on Waters & Kraus. We care about our clients personally as well as professionally, and we'll continue to provide the legal resources and interpersonal support you need to move forward.
Extensive resources to advance your case
It's not unusual for high-volume plaintiffs' firms to have just one attorney for every 1,000 cases. At Waters & Kraus, our average ratio is 1:5 — which allows us to provide a level of personal attention that few other firms can match. In addition, Waters & Kraus offers highly sophisticated in-house documentation capabilities and a robust Litigation Support Department to expertly catalog and evaluate the huge amounts of information a qui tam case can involve.
How Waters & Kraus can help whistleblowers
With a national presence and in-depth experience fighting fraud against the government, Waters & Kraus, LLP, provides aggressive representation of whistleblowers in qui tam actions and related complaints. The firm currently represents whistleblowers seeking to recover funds on behalf of the federal and state governments in a variety of cases, which may involve defendants such as large pharmaceutical companies, government contractors, school district contractors, and hospice and nursing home care providers.
