What to do Next
If you believe you know of a violation of the False Claims Act that would support a Qui Tam case, you should contact an attorney knowledgeable about such actions and talk with him or her. An attorney can answer any questions you have about the Qui Tam provisions of the False Claims Act, help you evaluate the strength of any case you are considering, and help you understand and weigh the considerations involved in becoming a whistleblower.
To prepare for such a discussion, you should organize your thoughts and the evidence you have related to the suspected violation. Go through the questions and exercises above and consider how you would answer each of them. (If you write down your answers, remember that materials you prepare in anticipation of retaining counsel to represent you in a Qui Tam action may be protected from disclosure by the attorney-client privilege. But you could lose the protection afforded by the attorney-client privilege if you disclose the document to third parties. You should treat any materials you prepare in anticipation of providing them to your counsel as confidential and not disclose them to others.)
