When Partnering Up May Be Best in Whistleblower Litigation

When a whistleblower makes the admirable decision to speak against injustice, it is of paramount importance to hire a lawyer with a successful record litigating whistleblower and qui tam claims.

Firm Partner Michael Williams of Bienert Katzman Littrell Williams LLP, widely considered as an authority on whistleblower litigation, was interviewed by Best Lawyers® about embracing the complexities in this area of law, collaborating with referring counsel, and achieving success for clients through his unique perspective.

“We embrace challenges, and whistleblower claims present the most complex, interesting litigation,” Mr. Williams said. “Each case forces BKLW to come up with creative strategies that will be used to ultimately advocate effectively in front of judges or juries, with the goal of securing justice that reflects the bravery of the client.”
