Defense Contractor Whistleblowers
Are You On Active Duty Or A Veteran Who Suspects Fraud Against The U.S. Government Or Military?
Our Defense Contractor Whistleblower Lawyers Help Veterans and Military Personnel Report Defense Contractor Fraud And Maximize Their Cash Awards
Our U.S. government grants nearly $300 billion each year to defense contractors who provide clothing, food, weapons, aircraft, ships and other military supplies for our armed forces. Unfortunately, many defense contractors attempt to abuse these funds for their own financial gain, wasting taxpayer dollars and putting the safety of our nation and its service men and women at risk.
Our defense contractor whistleblower lawyers help weapons manufacturers, military equipment mechanics, aircraft engineers, cybersecurity technicians and other defense contractor employees fight fraud, waste and abuse at its source. Holding the largest whistleblower settlement in U.S. history ($16.65 billion), our experienced team of defense contractor whistleblower lawyers have already earned clients over $100 million dollars in award money.
Do you have information on defense contractor fraud against the U.S. government? Veterans, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Army and other defense contractor personnel who have information on fraud against the Department of Defense are encouraged to contact us and learn more about whistleblower rights in a free, fully confidential consultation.

Department of Defense Uses False Claims Act To Expose Defense Contractor Fraud
You might be entitled to a large cash award. Enacted during the Civil War to expose overcharging and defective goods supplied to the Union Army, the False Claims Act, or “Lincoln Law,” pays cash incentives to urge those with information on fraud to come forward.
When a whistleblower’s information leads to a successful settlement or verdict, the federal False Claims Act, 31 U.S.C. §§ 3729 - 3733, offers that whistleblower between 15% and 30% of the total government recovery. Our defense contractor whistleblower lawyers’ veteran and active military clients often obtain cash awards that range in the hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.
Common False Claims Act violations committed by defense contractors include:
- Making fraudulent statements or misrepresentations in defense contract bidding
- Overbilling or submitting fraudulent invoices for defense contract labor, services or goods
- Using defective, refurbished or otherwise unsafe materials and parts
- Cross-charging from fixed price contracts to cost-plus contracts
- Skirting design specifications or other contract requirements
- Failing to notify the government of product deficiencies upon discovery
- Failing to adhere to government environmental or worker safety standards
- Violations of best-price requirements
- Violations of Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) obligation
Evidence of intent to defraud the government is not required. If you are questioning whether some act by a defense contractor may be a violation of the False Claims Act, our defense contractor whistleblower lawyers are happy to answer your questions in a free, confidential consultation.
