Defense Contractor Fraud
Helping Employees Shine a Light on Defense Contractor Fraud
Whistleblower cases go hand-in-hand with war profiteering and defense contractor fraud. In fact, Congress originally passed the False Claims Act during the Civil War in order to counteract rampant fraud by profiteers who sold shoddy goods to the Union Army at inflated prices. Today, corruption, waste, fraud and abuse still play a large role during wars as deceitful contractors seek to make a quick dollar off the taxpayer.
At the Chicago law firm, Loevy & Loevy, we have some of the best trial lawyers in the nation. A successful whistleblower claim could be very lucrative for you and you can benefit from the experience of our legal team as your case moves through the process.

You Can File a Fraud Claim Under the False Claims Act
There are a variety of activities for which whistleblowers can claim a bounty under the False Claims Act, including:
- Diversion of government monies to personal profits or non-authorized uses
- Use of inflated invoices to over-bill for goods or services
- Reporting inflating costs on a cost reimbursement or “costs plus” contract
- Falsifying data used to negotiate a fixed fee contract
- Knowing or reckless violation of contract terms, particularly when coupled with a false certification or representation about the goods or services
If your employer is undertaking contracts to provide goods or services to the military and not living up to them, you could bring a whistleblower claim against them which would entitle you to a bounty if the government reclaims their money.
