Law Firms Investigating Claims By Holders of Puerto Rico Debt, Including COFINA Bonds

Attorney Advertising

PLANTATION, FL, UNITED STATES, July 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ackerman, Link & Sartory, P.A. and David A. Weintraub, P.A. are investigating investors’ potential claims against UBS Financial, Merrill Lynch and other broker dealers related to investments in Puerto Rico debt.

On May 30, 2017, United States District Court Judge Laura Taylor Swain ordered “a freeze on all disbursements” to investors holding bonds known as COFINA’s. COFINA’s are paid from local sales-tax revenues. The immediate impact of the ruling was the placement into escrow of the $16.3 million bond payment that was recently due. Subsequent monthly payments will also be placed into escrow. COFINA bondholders are also owed a $277 million payment due on August 1; 2017. That payment will also likely be placed into escrow.

COFINA bondholders who were lead to believe that COFINA payments would be superior to general obligation bondholders’ claims, may be able to recover their investment losses in arbitration against the broker dealer who sold them the bonds.

Potential claimants may discuss legal options and/or the possibility of pursuing claims in arbitration by contacting Scott Link at 561-838-4100 or David A. Weintraub at 800.718.1422. Ackerman Link & Sartory and David A. Weintraub, P.A. are separate law firms that would jointly represent potential claimants.

Biosimilars & Biobetters 2017

SMi Group release interview with Glenn Kazo, President and Chief Operating Officer from Prolong Pharmaceuticals

…companies are now finding out that regulators and customers hold a very high standard of ‘similar’ and an even higher standard for “interchangeable"”

— Glenn Kazo, President and COO, Prolong Pharmaceuticals

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, July 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — SMi Group have released an interview with Glenn Kazo, President and Chief Operating Officer from Prolong Pharmaceuticals, ahead of his presentation at the 8th annual industry summit on Biosimilars & Biobetters this September.

Prolong Pharmaceuticals is a privately held company with portfolio of hematology and oncology products in clinical development. With over 25 years of experience, Glenn Kazo has been very active in the advancement of Biosimilars and BioBetters, both as an industry speaker and in leading several drug development programs. Throughout his career, Glenn has continued an active consulting practice, advising biopharma clients and venture capital firms on corporate strategy and development.

With a focus on Biobetters, his presentation will explore developing the next generation anti-neuropenic factor. Neulasta is one of the most desirable targets for biosimilar development. Glen’s talk will discuss ongoing technical and market challenges to biosimilar versions of Neulasta, neutropenia prevention vs treatment; and the commercial approach to developing ANF-RhoTM.

In the run-up to the event, SMi Group caught up with Glen to discuss in industry developments and on-going challenges in Biosimilars.

“Beginning in 2012, I gave a series of talks called Why ‘BioDifferent Equals BioBetter.’ The underlying theme was that it is much easier to prove that products are different rather than to prove that products are similar. It wasn’t a popular concept – but companies are now finding out that regulators and customers hold a very high standard of ‘similar’ and an even higher standard for “interchangeable.”

The full interview is available to read in the event download centre with further Q&A’s from Celltrion and Bioceros.

SMi’s 8th Annual Biosimilars & Biobetters event will take place on 27th and 28th September 2017 at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London UK.

Indiana Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Steel Mill or Factory Worker in Indiana With Mesothelioma to Call for Direct Access to The Nation's Top Attorneys for Compensation Results

The attorney you are talking to must have references that prove they have represented steel mill or factory workers and they have achieved the best financial compensation for people like this”

— Indiana Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Indiana Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Our number one priority for people in Indiana with recently confirmed mesothelioma is they receive the best legal advice from incredibly skilled mesothelioma attorneys. There should be no legal missteps when it comes to receiving the best possible financial compensation-especially if we are talking about a steel mill or factory worker in Indiana.

"As we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303 we do not want an inexperienced lawyer or law firm diminishing a mesothelioma compensation claim because they lacked the knowledge or skill to follow through for their client and get them the best possible financial settlement results. If we are talking about a steel mill or factory worker there can be some different legal skill sets required if the diagnosed person or their family are going to get the best possible financial compensation settlement results. " http://Indiana.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

As an example:

* "The attorney you are talking to must have references that prove they have successfully represented steel mill or factory workers and they have achieved the best possible financial compensation results for people like this.
* "The attorney must be very well versed on how steel mills or factories work because this information is essential in putting together the compensation claim for mesothelioma.
* "The attorney must have an extremely skilled support team that can assist them in developing the mesothelioma compensation claim. Typically, this will include a researcher and an investigator. The investigator will attempt to find eyewitnesses at the mill or factory that can confirm the diagnosed person's exposure to asbestos.
* "If the lawyer you are talking to seems hesitant on any of this information, or does not understand why these reasonable-needed steps are vital please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 for direct access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who could write a book about mesothelioma compensation claims and attention to detail." http://Indiana.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Indiana Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. High- risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Indiana include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing, or industrial workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. In most instances, the diagnosed person’s exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

Recall Masters Announces Integration with Record360

Dealers, rental agencies, and consumers now have real-time status updates when returning vehicle rentals or during recalls; helps avoid claims disputes

ALISO VIEJO, CA, USA, July 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recall Masters, Inc., the leading provider of automotive recall news, data, training, and communications today announced a partnership with Record360, the leading software for digital asset condition documentation and asset condition management, to integrate its real-time vehicle recall lookup into the Record360 app. Dealers, rental agencies and consumers now have enhanced transparency and real-time updates when returning vehicle rentals, and/or during recalls. This also helps both parties avoid unnecessary claims disputes.

Record360 offers app-based condition reporting software that allows dealers to automate the asset management component within their rental and leasing departments, by digitizing vehicle conditions reviews. Record360 eliminates the problem of customers claiming damage while their vehicles are in for repair, or claiming they did not cause damage to a loaner or rental vehicle.

Last summer saw new legislation passed on vehicle safety recalls, which results in a fine of $5,000 if a consumer is put into a rental or loaner vehicle with an outstanding recall. Rental car agencies must fix any and all open safety defects before renting out vehicles to customers.

“Our two companies share a common mission which is to help digitize archaic, paper-based processes still prevalent in the automotive and vehicle rental industry. Processes wrapped around rental returns, and now vehicle recalls in particular, continue to be major pain point for dealers and other stakeholders,” said Shane Skinner, Record360 CEO.

Determining recall status during the initial inspection process saves time, reduces friction and prevents unnecessary upsets between dealers or car rental agencies and their customers. It also can help prevent customers being put into a rental or loaner vehicle that has an existing recall that should not be on the road.

“Countless damage disputes impact relationships, customer satisfaction, and cause negative reviews. Vehicle condition and claims management processes is dependent on paper or low-fidelity digital reporting and Record360 fills the gap with a modern solution,” said Chris Miller, President of Recall Masters. “Additionally, our integration with Record360 ensures that the user is informed of any open recall in real-time while the initial inspection is done. This helps build trusting relationships between automotive dealers or car rental agencies and their customers.”

To learn more about Recall Masters complete beginning-to-end solution, schedule a demo or receive a free trial call: 888-651-4480; email info@recallmasters.com; or visit: http://www.recallmasters.com.

Arizona Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Diagnosed US Navy Veteran in Arizona To Call Them About Compensation and Why Its Vital They Hire One of The Nation's Most Skilled Lawyers

The incredibly skilled mesothelioma attorneys we suggest recognize how important it is for a diagnosed person with mesothelioma to get properly compensated-so do we”

— Arizona Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Arizona Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging a US Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Arizona to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 about financial compensation as well as why it is incredibly vital to hire one of the nation's most experienced mesothelioma attorneys to get the best settlement outcome." http://Arizona.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

A mesothelioma compensation claim for a US Navy Veteran in Arizona can potentially involve hundreds of thousands of dollars or more, but if the diagnosed person hires a local car accident lawyer or a mesothelioma marketing law firm there is not much anyone can do to help terminate the lawyers or law firm if they turn out to be less than competent. To illustrate the point-In the group's opinion a substandard mesothelioma compensation outcome would be something like net 350,000 to the diagnosed US Navy Veteran who was exposed as a machinist or boiler technician while in the US Navy. The group believes the net compensation award could be as much as $750,000 or more if the person had hired one of the nation’s most qualified and experienced mesothelioma attorneys as they would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303. http://Arizona.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Before a US Navy Veteran with confirmed mesothelioma in Arizona or their family hires a lawyer/law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim they are urged to call the Arizona Mesothelioma Victims Center for some clarity at 800-714-0303. The group's number one goal is a person with mesothelioma in Arizona receiving the best possible compensation and they are more than happy to suggest or recommend some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys anytime to a diagnosed person or their family who will almost always call the diagnosed person-immediately.

"The incredibly skilled mesothelioma attorneys we suggest recognize how important it is for a diagnosed person with mesothelioma to get properly compensated-so do we." http://Arizona.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Arizona the Arizona Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at each hospital.

The Arizona Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to emphasize theirs is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Arizona including communities such as Phoenix, Tucson, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Gilbert, Tempe. Peoria, or Prescott. http://Arizona.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Arizona include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, nuclear power plant workers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers.

Great Gold vs. Great White: Possible Workers’ Compensation Case?

Krasnolaw.net

Worker's Compensation related to Michael Phelp's Shark Race

Attorneys debate the possible workers’ compensation case in Phelps vs. Shark on Discovery Channel’s Shark Week in the event of a shark attack.

Potential catastrophic events could make this race fraught with legal issues. Any one of our attorneys could navigate these dangerous and murky issues in court.”

— Jason Krasno, CEO

PHILADELPHIA, UNITED STATES, July 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Discovery Channel’s highly anticipated Shark Week begins this Sunday, July 23rd, kicking it off with Phelps vs. Shark: Great Gold vs. Great White.

*Que the Jaws Theme Song* because in honor of Discovery Channel's Shark Week, we’re diving into the open waters of workers’ compensation and taking a bite out of benefits.

Discovery Channel’s annual, weeklong Shark Week features shark-based programming, originally devoted to conservation efforts and correcting misconceptions about sharks. Shark Week has been the longest-running cable television programming event in history, reaching an average of 2.5 million viewers throughout the week.

To kick off the most anticipated week of the year, 39 world record holder and 23 Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps, will be competing against a Great White shark in a 100-meter, open-water race off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa.

In one of the promotional teasers for the Shark Week special, a narrator states “One trained to be the best since the day he was born. The other has been perfected by evolution” leaving viewers eager to find out who will be named the winner in The Battle for Ocean Supremacy.

But this left the attorneys at Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo with the question, if something were to go unplanned during the filming of this race that resulted in a shark attack, would Phelps be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and would the injuries sustained qualify as on the job?

According to statistics, more shark attacks result in a loss of limb rather than death, but swimmers are among those who are most prone to being attacked. So, by filming this special in the open-water, already put Phelps at an increased risk of being attacked by a shark.

To try and answer the question of whether or not Phelps would qualify for workers’ compensation benefits for sustaining a shark attack related injury, we referred to the basic components of a justifiable workers’ compensation case.

1. The injured party must be an employee of that company
2. The injury or illness must be work-related
3. The employer must have workers’ compensation insurance

The attorneys dissected this case further relating it back to the eligibility requirements of a workers’ compensation case and concluded that determining whether Phelps would be entitled to receiving compensation benefits in the event of a shark attack while filming the race, would come down to the factor of if Phelps is considered an employee of Discovery Channel at the time of the injury.

If Phelps had a legally-binding contract of employment with Discovery Channel during the time that the shark attack occurred, then the injury sustained would be considered on the job, qualifying him to receive compensation for wage loss benefits in addition to medical expenses. The amount of compensation he could receive would depend on the extent of the shark attack injury.

In contrast, if Phelps were only considered a guest of Discovery Channel and not an employee, then that would not make him eligible to receive any benefits to compensate for his injury.

Looking at Phelps’s case from a legal perspective, another type of case could consequently arise from a shark attack injury during the filming of the race.

If a third-party other than Discovery Channel was involved in the filming of the race and were held responsible for the action that resulted in the shark attack, or for neglecting to take action that could have prevented the injury, then Phelps would have a personal injury case.

With a third-party claim, Phelps could pursue benefits above the compensation provided through workers’ compensation. To receive those benefits, he would have to prove that his injury sustained from the shark attack was the result of negligence by the third-party.

In the case of Michael Phelps, the neglectful third party could be the boating company that issued the use of the boat to Discovery Channel, or the captain of the boat who took Phelps to the spot in where the shark attack occurred.

Not only would Phelps have a workers’ compensation case, but so would other personnel involved in the filming of the Shark Week special.

A team of fifteen divers and camera operators entered the open-water of Cape Town, South Africa and were positioned around Phelps to provide increased protection and distraction if necessary. Scientists were also sent out into the depths of the open water to gather supporting data on Great Whites, required to debunk the question who is faster: Great Gold or Great White?

The same three components of a justifiable workers’ compensation case can be used to determine the eligibility of the divers and scientists. In the event of an injury sustained from a shark attack, would these divers and scientists be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits? Are these divers and scientists legal employees of Discovery Channel, qualifying them for benefits to compensate the shark attack injury? If so, what benefits would they be entitled to? Or would a third-party be held responsible due to negligence, giving the divers and scientist a personal injury case?

It’s doubtful that Discovery Channel would ever actually put the Olympian in any risky situation that could potentially result in a personnel loss, but it does possess an interesting topic on the extent of workers’ compensation coverage for on the job injuries.

Although shark attacks are uncommon on the job injuries in Pennsylvania, other types of workplace injuries can occur, leaving employees with a loss of wage and medical expenses. The attorneys at Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo provide representation to help injured workers obtain the full benefits they need and deserve.
If you or someone you know need the help of an experienced attorney for a workers’ compensation case, contact us at (877) 299- 0779 or by initiating a live chat with a dedicated member of our legal team.

New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in New Jersey To Call for Direct Access To New York Attorneys Who Get the Best Compensation Results

Most people with mesothelioma in New Jersey fail to realize-if they want the best compensation they will need to have some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys assisting them”

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Jersey Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are now urging a US Navy Veteran in New Jersey who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family members to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they are talking directly to some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys who consistently get the best possible financial compensation claims for their clients.

* "A federally sponsored claims center for Navy Veterans or people with mesothelioma. To get the best mesothelioma compensation you need to have one of the nation's most capable fulltime mesothelioma attorneys assisting you.
* "We have lately noticed a cable TV ad talking about class actions and mesothelioma. A class action will not result in a person with confirmed mesothelioma receiving the very best possible financial compensation. Class actions usually benefit lawyers as opposed to the people who have been victimized by something like asbestos.
* "Billions Recovered-Typically law firms that make this claim are middlemen marketing law firms who sell people with mesothelioma to other law firms who actually will do the work on the financial claim.
* "US Navy Mesothelioma Center-"Again the US Navy or the federal government do not sponsor a claims center nor do they assist Navy Veterans with a mesothelioma compensation claim that can be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. However, we do, and if a Navy Veteran or person in New Jersey has been diagnosed can call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they are talking directly with some of the nation's most qualified mesothelioma attorneys-on the spot." http://NewJersey.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

NCJFCJ Recognizes Innovation and Impact With 3rd Annual Justice Innovation Awards

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced two honorees of the 3rd annual Justice Innovation Awards

For many years, Judge Connors has shown a remarkable dedication to implementing tribal and community court peacemaking principles to resolve cases.”

— Bridget M. McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Reno, Nev.) – The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ) announced two honorees of the 3rd annual Justice Innovation Awards recognizing the national Innovator of the Year and the Impact of the Year recipients: the Honorable Timothy Connors of the 22nd Circuit Court in Washtenaw County, Mich. and the Latin American Youth Center in Washington, D.C. The honorees were recognized at the NCJFCJ’s 80th Annual Conference highlighting informative presentations on current and cutting edge topics that inspired, provoked and precipitated discussions about issues facing the juvenile and family court system.

The Innovator of the Year Award honors an active, in-good-standing NCJFCJ member who has inspired, sponsored, promoted or led an innovation or accomplishment of national significance in juvenile justice, child abuse and neglect, family law, and/or domestic violence. The Impact of the Year Award recognizes, from the Annual Conference-host state (Washington, D.C.), an individual, state/local court, law firm, advocacy group, or service provider who has been instrumental in leading or implementing significant improvements or innovations which advance the mission of the NCJFCJ.

“It is our privilege to recognize the outstanding work of both Judge Connors and the team at the Latin American Youth Center,” said Judge Anthony (Tony) Capizzi, NCJFCJ president. “We honor their tireless commitment to improving the lives of children and families, especially those in our justice system. We hope that we can continue to raise awareness of the core issues that affect our nation’s families.”

Judge Connors serves as co-chair of the Michigan Tribal-State-Federal Forum, instrumental in drafting the Michigan Indian Family Preservation Act. In 2013, he was awarded a grant by the Michigan Supreme Court to determine whether tribal peacemaking values and practices could be implemented in a state court system. As presiding judge of the Washtenaw County Peacemaking Court, he has fostered the healing of important relationships among litigants in child welfare, family and probate cases by incorporating Native American peacemaking principles and philosophies in conflict resolution.

“I am forever grateful to the Michigan Supreme Court, the University of Michigan Law School, and now the NCJFCJ for opening this path of Peacemaking and restorative justice in state court systems,” said Judge Connors. “This path is the creation of the collaborative effort of the National American Indian Court Judges Association, the Native American Rights Fund Indigenous Peacemaking Initiative and the Michigan Tribal State Federal Forum to find common ground. This common ground greatly benefits our youth, our families and our communities. I hope all of our states will choose to walk this path together.”

“This is a great national honor that Judge Connors has received, and it is well deserved,” said Bridget M. McCormack, Michigan Supreme Court. “For many years, Judge Connors has shown a remarkable dedication to implementing tribal and community court peacemaking principles to resolve cases. In fact, his court was the first in Michigan to adopt the use of these principles, and his success in this area has prompted other states to take notice. His passion for applying justice in collaborative and innovative ways is nothing short of inspiring.”

“Judge Connors honors and respects the traditions of the tribes and tribal justice systems that provided the foundational knowledge and peacemaking principles for his court,” said Nikki Borchardt Campbell, Executive Director, National American Indian Court Judges Association. “We believe these restorative principles can be beneficial to participants when applied correctly and in the exact manner that Judge Connors has applied them in his court. His court and his approach are shining examples. We are proud of his work and his contribution to both state and tribal courts.”

The Latin American Youth Center’s (LAYC) mission is to empower a diverse population of youth to achieve a successful transition to adulthood, through multi-cultural, comprehensive, and innovative programs that address youths’ social, academic, and career needs. The LAYC works with every young person who comes through their doors, to help them develop the skills and self-confidence they need to make a successful transition to young adulthood. The LAYC offers bilingual programs and services designed to address the multiple needs of the young people and families in the community.

They have services to help youth achieve independent living, job training, substance abuse treatment programs, and a teen mom's program. Their areas of service include: Academics, with year-round tutoring and homework assistance, after-school programs, GED exam preparation and education, and college preparation and retention; Arts and Recreation, offering art and media programs, out-of-school time recreation, and mentoring; Job Readiness, with job preparedness and life skills training, job placement services, internships, and career exploration; Safe Housing, offering short- and long-term family-based and transitional living programs for homeless and runaway youth with special programs for young families and LGBTQ-identifying youth; and Health and Wellness, providing welcoming, non-clinical settings for sexual health education and HIV/STI/pregnancy testing and counseling, mental health and substance use disorders treatment, and parenting skills for young parents.

“The work we do at the Latin American Youth Center is truly a collaboration between compassionate District Court judges like the Honorable Hiram Puig-Lugo who committed to supporting our communities, the dedicated staff of D.C.'s Children and Family Services Administration, and LAYC's team of youth developers and social workers going above and beyond for each youth who comes through our doors,” said Lori M. Kaplain, president and CEO, LAYC. “Together, through innovative and community-based collaboration, we're able to make a real difference in the lives of our most vulnerable youth, in particular for youth of color and immigrant youth. We are truly humbled and appreciative of this award.”

“The Latin American Youth Center has a long and distinguished history of dedicated support for families in the Washington, D.C. area,” said the Honorable Hiram Puig-Lugo, Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Their commitment to service has helped countless immigrant and non-immigrant youth navigate the difficult journey from adolescence into adulthood. They are a valuable, integral and indispensable part of our community.”

In most cases, the exposure to asbestos took place in the 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s, or 1980′s. Mesothelioma typically takes three to five decades to develop. http://Nebraska.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New Jersey, West Virginia, Florida, Wyoming, and Washington. However, mesothelioma does happen in Nebraska as the Nebraska Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303.

Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Insider with Proof a Federal Contractor in Wisconsin Is Falsely Claiming to be Minority Owned to Call About Rewards

If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned to business in Wisconsin to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding-call us”

— Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, July 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging an insider with proof a Wisconsin based federal contractor is lying about being minority owned to gain an unfair advantage on federal bids for work to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. As we would like to discuss anytime the rewards for this type of information can be extremely significant." http://Wisconsin.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Center believes that many companies misrepresent the nature of their ownership structure to gain an unfair advantage when bidding for lucrative federal contracts. As an example, the US Department of Transportation mandates that 10% of federal highway jobs go to a minority or woman owned business. These federal contracts can be worth tens of millions of dollars for even a subcontractor.

The Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Most federal agencies put a premium of giving minority or women owned businesses preferential treatment when it comes to biding on federal contracts. The system designed to assist minority or women owned businesses obtain federal work contracts is very easy to manipulate. As an example, a Caucasian male could appoint his female wife president/CEO of a Wisconsin based food distribution company, and or a construction company that builds highways and only an insider or the employees of the company would know the husband ran the business. The company could be based anywhere in Wisconsin including Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, Kenosha, Racine, Appleton, or Oshkosh.

“If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned to business in Wisconsin to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding or as an insider you possess this type of proof-please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let’s explore the reward possibilities. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could have been worth." http://Wisconsin.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Wisconsin Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Wisconsin based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Wisconsin can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Wisconsin.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com
