NEW YORK, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Constantine Cannon today announced the launch of Whistleblower Insider, a legal blog for whistleblowers and their lawyers. The blog is written and managed by Constantine Cannon's experienced team of whistleblower lawyers and features articles, analyses and updates on the most pressing issues facing whistleblowers today.
Constantine Cannon represents whistleblowers under the various federal and state laws that encourage industry insiders to report evidence of fraud or misconduct. The firm has particular experience representing whistleblowers under the False Claims Act and under the recently enacted whistleblower provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act. In fact, Constantine Cannon was one of the first law firms in the country to represent whistleblowers under these new provisions.
Constantine Cannon's whistleblower practice builds on the firm's internationally recognized antitrust law practice. The firm is responsible for securing two of the largest antitrust recoveries in United States history, returning more than $5 billion to its clients and securing tens of billions of dollars in injunctive relief. The firm's experience spans across multiple industries including healthcare, banking, electronic payments, insurance, high tech, telecommunications, Internet commerce and government contracting.
Richard Aborn, Constantine Cannon's Managing Partner and a former New York prosecutor, said: "We are very excited about our growing whistleblower practice and the launch of Whistleblower Insider. The role of whistleblowers in supporting government enforcement has never been more critical."
"Through Whistleblower Insider," Mr. Aborn added, "we hope to help actual and would-be whistleblowers make informed decisions on how they should best take advantage of the ever-expanding array of rights and protections afforded whistleblowers."
