GBB Attorneys have earned their reputation in high stakes litigation representing whistleblowers under the False Claims Act in cases resulting in the recovery of $5 Billion for Federal and State governments. They have litigated cases that have driven regulatory and legislative reform, including rules to protect school children against exposure to asbestos and legislation to compensate nuclear weapons workers who have secured a dread disease. Litigation brought by firm attorneys under Federal Environmental laws caused the Secretary of Energy to cancel a massive project to recycle and distribute into commerce radioactive metal from a Tennessee Nuclear Weapons Plant.
