Whistleblowing And Retaliation

Bergeson, LLP attorneys have substantial experience in defending against and prosecuting whistleblower and retaliation claims.  We have assisted and represented both employers and employees under various whistleblower protection laws, including the California Whistleblower Protection Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Dodd-Frank Act, and the False Claims Act.

For our employer clients, we counsel them on corporate compliance issues, assist them with whistleblower investigations, and defend them in whistleblower and retaliation litigation, among other things.  Our deep expertise allows us to anticipate potential problems and pitfalls and to act expediently in order to minimize any ensuing repercussions.

For our employee clients, our lawyers are present at every stage of the process, from the pre-complaint stage (when an employee is contemplating whether to file a formal complaint against his or her employer in the first place) to the conclusion of any litigation.

Our law firm’s representation of clients in whistleblower and retaliation matters is multi-faceted, and as necessary, will cut across other practice groups, including Internal & Government Investigations and Securities Litigation.
