False Claims Act, Whistleblower and Qui Tam
Michael Rosenblat has been prosecuting False Claims Act cases for almost 20 years: first for the State of Illinois as lead prosecutor for the Illinois Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Unit (“MFCU”), part of the Illinois State Police Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, and then as Deputy Chief of the Special Litigation Bureau of the Illinois Attorney General’s Office. The MFCU focuses on fraud affecting the Medicaid Program, and the Special Litigation Bureau prosecutes all other violations of the Illinois False Claims Act.Thorough Preparation
Mr. Rosenblat’s preparation of False Claims Act cases ensures that your case is put in the best position to reach a successful outcome. The Rosenblat Law firm stands behind the False Claims Act cases it files and will pursue them even if the government declines to intervene and take over the case, so long as the case continues to be justified by the law and the facts. The firm’s proactive approach and investigation of False Claims Act violations produces complaints and disclosure statements, which clearly and effectively demonstrate the allegations alleged in the False Claims Act qui tam complaint.Resources
Although the Rosenblat Law firm is smaller than some other law firms purporting to have a False Claim Act practice, many of those firms only recently became involved in False Claims Act litigation after significant False Claims Act recoveries were in the news, such as the $334 million verdict against Amerigroup. (Mr. Rosenblat was the only attorney who represented Mr. Tyson, the relator in Tyson v. Amerigroup, throughout this litigation, even after bringing additional law firms on.) Mr. Rosenblat routinely collaborates with other experienced False Claims Act law firms to assist in the litigation of declined cases that should be pursued. Mr. Rosenblat has co-counseled with firms from New York, Chicago, and Texas.Personal Attention
