A Whistleblower Lawyer Will Fight For You
A whistleblower is any person who exposes fraudulent, dishonest or illegal activities taking place within a company, organization or governmental entity. Whistleblowers may report the misconduct internally to someone in authority within the organization or externally to law enforcement, regulatory agencies, the media or groups concerned with the organization’s particular activities. The federal government and several states across the nation have enacted laws to encourage whistleblowers to come forward by providing protections against retaliation and rewards for reporting fraudulent activity.
Whistleblowers have been responsible for exposing a wide range of illegal and fraudulent conduct, including health care (Medicare and Medicaid), defense contracting, government contracting, taxpayer, and securities fraud. Their courageous actions have resulted in the recovery of billions of U.S. dollars. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Office of the Whistleblower has asserted that the information and assistance provided by whistleblowers can be one of the most “powerful weapons” the government has to identify and combat securities fraud and other illegal activities.
Our Experienced Attorneys Investigate Whistleblower Cases
The attorneys at Zamansky LLC investigate and prosecute whistleblower cases. Our legal team has extensive experience working with the various and complex whistleblower laws to assist and protect clients seeking to expose and combat fraudulent activities.
Zamansky LLC is currently investigating Cyberonics, Inc. as a result of whistleblower allegations by a former employee, Andrew Hagerty. Hagerty sued Cyberonics for breach of contract and wrongful termination in violation of public policy. On February 4, 2013, Cyberonics announced that the lawsuit was voluntarily dismissed, and that the parties were subjecting the dispute to binding arbitration. We are acting on behalf of shareholders to identify potential securities fraud violations and breaches of fiduciary duties.
Cyberonics’ stock chart on YahooFinance reflects that, over a period of a few months, the Company’s stock price fell to $45 per share from over $55 per share. Our whistleblower law firm believes that Cyberonics’ shareholders should be concerned about Hagerty’s allegations because they call into question the accuracy and sustainability of the company’s earnings and growth. The allegations also open Cyberonics to regulatory investigation and potential, far-reaching, future harm.
