The Maryland False Claims Act, created in 2015, is modeled after the federal False Claims Act. The Maryland False Claims Act was amended in 2017, and again in 2022, to track changes made to the federal False Claims Act. Like the federal False Claims Act, the Maryland False Claims Act provides for awards to successful whistleblowers.
The U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland investigates and potentially prosecutes all federal whistleblower claims filed in the district. The Attorney General of Maryland investigates claims filed under the Maryland False Claims Act.
As former government attorneys themselves, the attorneys at the Whistleblower Law Collaborative have established strong working relationships with government attorneys nationwide.
