After more than a decade of service at the Department of Justice as a prosecutor and handling False Claims Act cases and qui tam (whistleblower) suits, and after four years as counsel at Covington & Burling, I launched my own firm in 2009.
I now bring my lengthy False Claims Act experience to the needs of individuals and small and medium-size companies facing government investigations or wishing to file whistleblower suits.

Ben is a phenomenal lawyer. Although he's a brilliant guy, he has a knack for stating arguments in a clear and unpretentious way. The combination of his keen intelligence with his calm demeanor and easy charm is killer. I give Ben the highest marks.
