Why We Represent Whistleblowers
Whistleblowers perform a vital public service by having the courage to report fraud and misconduct.
They assume great risk and need aggressive and highly skilled attorneys to ensure that their careers are protected and that they are fully eligible to obtain all the benefits to which they are entitled under law, including monetary rewards. Their cases can be grueling, the stakes are high and the opposition is never less than formidable. They need experienced whistleblower representation.
At Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, we've earned our reputation as the premier whistleblower advocates by winning such decisions for nearly 30 years. The laws at play are complex, but the reasons for our success are not. In case after case, we've provided whistleblower representation to our clients with the legal expertise and grit to beat even the toughest foes in court. At Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, we realize that standing up for the public interest often demands personal courage. We also know that whatever your job, you don't leave behind your rights and duties as a citizen when you step in the workplace door.
Our dedication to assisting whistleblowers led us to holdding a leading role in shaping the federal laws that protect and reward whistleblowers. The partners at Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto worked pro bono with Congress to ensure that strong whistleblower protection provisions were included in major reform legislation including the Dodd-Frank Act, the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Consumer Product Safety Act, the federal stimulus laws, and the Civil Rights Tax Relief Act. We are often called upon to testify in Congress to defend whistleblowers and advocate for effective legislation.
