Representing whistleblowers across the nation and around the world
Attorneys for Tax Whistleblowers
Phillips & Cohen LLP is the nation’s most successful law firm that represents whistleblowers. We represent individuals in the US and in other countries who provide information to the IRS whistleblower program about major violations of US tax laws—tax fraud, tax underpayment or tax evasion—and may be eligible for an IRS reward.
The IRS has made few whistleblower awards, but we have secured three multi-million-dollar whistleblower rewards from the IRS, including a $20 million award to a client.
Phillips & Cohen also won for a client the largest whistleblower reward from the SEC, more than $30 million. Separately, it won an SEC whistleblower reward of $3 million for another client, which is the third largest SEC whistleblower award.
Phillips & Cohen’s practice has focused solely on whistleblower cases for more than 25 years. In addition to IRS whistleblower claims, we represent whistleblowers in “qui tam” cases involving fraud against the government as well as claims filed with the Dodd-Frank whistleblower reward programs at the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Our cases have recovered more than $11.6 billion in civil settlements and criminal fines – a depth of experience and success with whistleblower cases that is unmatched by any other law firm.
Our attorneys have been regularly recognized for their successful work on whistleblower cases by inclusion on such lists as Lawdragon’s “500 Leading Lawyers in America” and the National Law Journal’s “Hot List” of plaintiffs’ law firms.
To work on tax cases, we have assembled a team of experts that have in-depth and specialized knowledge of the tax code and a close working relationship with the IRS Whistleblower Office.
If you would like Phillips & Cohen to represent you in a whistleblower claim for a tax case involving more than $2 million, please contact us.
