Fighting False Corporate Claims​

The False Claims Act allows individuals to sue companies that have defrauded the federal government. As a whistleblower, you are entitled to receive a portion of the money recovered on the government’s behalf in a False Claims Act lawsuit. A New York City consumer protection attorney at Meirowitz & Wasserberg, LLP can help you understand what laws are in place to protect you.

Whistleblowers Under the False Claims Act

Whistleblower claims – also referred to as qui tam lawsuits – require a thorough understanding of the law and involve complex procedural requirements not present in typical litigation. If you are aware of corporate wrongdoing and want to take action we are here to help.

Examples of qui tam cases include:

  • Medicare and Medicaid Fraud
  • Fraudulent Billing
  • Overcharging

Deceptive Advertising Laws

State and federal laws prohibit companies from using deceptive advertising to sell their products and services to consumers. New York consumers can pursue cases against companies that use misleading advertising for the following types of wrongful conduct:

  • Advertising features that a product does not actually have
  • Bait-and-switch marketing
  • Failure to disclose material information that would affect the decision to buy the product
  • Overstating the quality of a product or qualifications of a service provider
  • Fraudulent warranties and guarantees
  • Mislabeling food

Other Consumer Protection Claims

Our attorneys also assist New York residents who are victims of other types of consumer protection violations. In any situation where a company makes false representations, uses improper methods, or otherwise fails to meet its obligations, its customers may have claims for compensation. At Meirowitz & Wasserberg, LLP, we thrive on taking the big corporations to task on behalf of our clients.

In addition to deceptive advertising litigation, we pursue consumer protection cases involving:

  • Breaches of data security
  • Unfair debt collection practices
  • Predatory lending
  • Telemarketing fraud

If you are a victim of any of the previously mentioned bad acts by a large corporation we want to hear from you. We will fight to expose their improper practices and obtain the compensation you deserve.

Class Action Litigation in New York City

Of course, in many cases involving corporate fraud, you will not be the only victim. Class action litigation allows consumers to band together to fight against corporate misdeeds where one person’s individual claim standing alone does not justify the costs of going to court and the wrongful conduct meets the requirements of a class action.
