Kohn, Kohn & Colapinto, based in Washington, D.C., is the nation’s leading law firm for whistleblower protection. We stand up in court for those who speak out against fraud and illegal practices on the job. Our track record for protecting these whistleblowers, setting important national precedent, and obtaining successful judgments is unparalleled. KKC has won landmark cases in federal and state courts, before administrative agencies and in jury trials. We obtained the largest whistleblower reward ever granted to an individual employee in the history of the United States, $104 million dollar reward to a UBS bank whistleblower.
As experts in employee litigation, our attorneys focus on the many complex statutes that today are at issue in whistleblower cases, including the qui tam provision of the False Claims Act, which encourages workers to report government contract fraud. With clients from both the public and private sectors, we also pursue actions involving wrongful dismissal, the Dodd-Frank Act, which protects and rewards employees who report fraud in securities and commodities, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and IRS tax whistleblower rewards.
Founded in 1988, KKC has won numerous landmark decisions, rewriting workplace law while earning hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for our clients, protecting the public, and saving the taxpayers billions of dollars. The firm has successfully litigated a series of prominent cases, generating widespread recognition for the vital role whistleblowers play in a free society.
