Corruption Whistleblower Attorneys Fighting For Justice
We can help you take a stand against corporate misconduct
Corruption cases exposed by whistleblowers vary widely. Fraud, kickbacks, embezzlement, bribes and other illegal financial transactions can all involve corruption at various levels. In many cases, corruption often involves government contracts or private business transactions. Whatever the nature of such illegal transactions, corruption can cost taxpayers and businesses millions of dollars every year.
If you suspect corruption, our whistleblower attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard, P.C. in Houston can help you take a stand because we know how the legal system works. We realize your actions can make a dramatic difference. Without courageous whistleblowers like yourself reporting such criminal activity, corruption often continues to occur at the expense of all Americans.
What is corruption?
Corruption can take many forms. In general, corruption often involves powerful individuals or corporations misusing or abusing their power for unlawful financial gain. Examples of corruption can include:
- Giving or accepting bribes in exchange for business contracts
- Kickbacks (illegally diverting part of the money included in a contract to a business or individual in exchange for receiving the business contract)
- Illegally embezzling money from a company for personal gain
- Money laundering (concealing the origin of illegal profits by diverting the money through legitimate businesses)
Corruption can take many forms and involve many different individuals, organizations or agencies. If you suspect corruption is occurring, learn more about your legal options. Talk to an attorney familiar with handling complex legal cases.
How can corruption be stopped?
Corruption often thrives due to lack of oversight. If the individuals or businesses engaged in corrupt activity believe they can do so without any consequences, many of them will continue to do so. That’s why it’s important for someone with evidence of corruption to report such illegal activity to the appropriate investigative agency.
Whistleblowers who speak out against corruption serve a vital role in our society. They help expose corruption involving huge government contractors and multi-national corporations like Johnson & Johnson, which agreed to pay the federal government and most states more than $2 billion in fines and penalties under the False Claims Act for unapproved marketing of its anti-psychotic drug Risperdal.
Whatever the circumstances of your corruption case, the sooner you report illegal activity, the better. That’s why it’s important to talk to an attorney who thoroughly understands the rules and regulations governing complicated legal cases.
