Boyle Frost also represents whistle blowers in cases involving government fraud, tax fraud and evasion. In an effort to combat fraud by government contractors, the government has enacted the False Claims Act. This statute allows individuals who are aware of fraud against the government to actually file an action on behalf of the government. Depending upon the recovery, a “relator”, as the person with knowledge of the fraud is called, can receive up to 30% of the amount recovered by the government. The Internal Revenue Code also allows an individual with knowledge of tax fraud or evasion to recover between 15% and 30% of any amount eventually recovered by the IRS. There are significant administrative hurtles associated with whistle blower actions. At Boyle Frost, we have the expertise to successfully represent whistle blowers in any federal or state action.

The term “Fraud” whether it be securities or investment fraud or accusations of a pyramid or Ponzi scheme conjures up lots of images for people not well versed in the area. The truth is that frauds can be passed off as poor investments with the victim never knowing they were a victim. On the other hand, conduct that may, at first blush, appear questionable may be perfectly legal.
Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) are professionals trained to identify fraud and to determine the difference between a fraudulent scheme and an innocent misstatement. If you have lost some or all of an investment through the activities of an investment advisor, they can determine if the loss was caused by fraud or some other misconduct or was the result of market conditions. They frequently testify as fraud experts in court.
With these professionals on staff, we can go deeper and accomplish more than most law firms.
