Whistleblower

Bringing fraud to light requires enormous courage and often presents a host of challenges due to the length of time even the strongest whistleblower cases take to resolve. Get the support needed to expose crime committed against the government while still being able to survive and thrive as the case progresses.

Omni Bridgeway provides financing to individuals in the United States requiring assistance with covering living and business expenses while whistleblower claims are pending. 

We understand the destabilizing impact of blowing the whistle on fraud. Our funding helps whistleblowers rebuild financial security and move forward with integrity after having made the right decision in compromising situations. 

We also offer portfolio funding to law firms handling whistleblower cases on a contingency fee basis. In such situations, the potential fee income from the cases serves as collateral for the funding. The firms pay returns to Omni Bridgeway only in the event of successful outcomes in the cases.

 

Typical Uses

  • Paying legal fees and costs for expensive litigation
  • Paying living expenses while claims are pending, particularly where the defendant’s retaliatory behavior has prompted financial difficulties
  • Obtaining working capital to keep a business running despite damage caused by a competitor's fraud on the government or start a new one

 

Features

  • Non-recourse – not due for repayment in the event of unsuccessful results
  • Available for single cases and awards or portfolios of litigation and awards
  • Includes additional case analysis provided during our due diligence process
  • Provided without control exerted over legal or settlement decisions, particularly in qui tam cases in which the government has intervened and therefore controls settlement
  • Available for deployment at mutually agreed intervals

Criteria

  • The case must arise under United States federal or state whistleblower laws
  • Strong likelihood of government intervention
  • The litigation must have strong prospects of success
  • Clear ability for the opposing party to pay (enforcement services available from our team)
  • Anticipated relator awards exceeding 10x the requested funding amount
