Houston Qui Tam Lawyers
Qui tam is an archaic legal term that has managed to survive into modern legal practice because of the extraordinarily useful function it can play in helping to prevent corporate malfeasance. In essence, qui tam lawsuits allow employees who have reason to believe that their employer has defrauded the government to pursue a claim against the company on behalf of the government.
In order to be able to effectively pursue a qui tam lawsuit, which can be extraordinarily complicated in many cases, it is often necessary to seek the assistance of a qualified legal professional.
