Extrapolation Puts Big Data to Work for the Little Guy

By on

Large frauds can generate hundreds of thousands of false claims for payment. The whistleblowers who uncover such frauds rarely have proof of every single false claim. Instead, they will usually have evidence of the overarching scheme—from emails, company memos, or conversations with insiders—along with some examples of the false claims that the scheme has generated. Now more than ever, that could be enough to win, as long as the whistleblower and their lawyers know how to use inferential statistics to their advantage.

About This Firm

Hodgson Russ is one of only a few major law firms that represents both whistleblowers and companies accused by whistleblowers of wrongdoing. This unusual perspective means we are exceptionally well positioned to advise whistleblowers about potential claims.

We are not a "whistleblower mill" that pays little attention to the needs of its clients or the factual nuances of complex cases. Rather, we are a team of highly experienced lawyers that selects only the best cases, affording us the time and focus to become fully immersed in the factual and legal details necessary to bring cases to successful resolution.
