Hats off to Attorney Francis Murphy for assisting a Londonderry engineering firm, which specializes in the design and manufacture of special emission control systems, to blow the whistle on the deceptive business practices of its competitor, Ward Diesel. Under the False Claims Act, Attorney Murphy asserted that Ward routinely charged government agencies artificially inflated prices for the purchase of diesel filter systems through Government contracts. The result — a whopping $628,000 settlement to the Government of which our client received $94,200 in recognition of its efforts to shine the light on this fraudulent conduct. Attorney Murphy’s determined efforts send a sharp message to would-be offenders that bilking the Government at taxpayer expense will not be tolerated. Attorney Murphy delivered an exceptional result for our client and, in so doing, demonstrated the depth and range of our Firm’s complex litigation practice.
