Media outlet Just Anti-Corruption published a detailed article on how a Rickman Law Group client triggered the U.S. government’s $519 million Teva settlement. This could result in a Dodd-Frank reward ranging from $51.9 million to $155.7 million for RLG’s client, which is 10% to 30% of the total fine. The article also notes that Mr. Rickman “represented a whistleblower in a foreign bribery probe into German healthcare firm Fresenius, which recently settled FCPA charges [for $231 million].” This will result in a reward of $23.1 million to $69.3 million for RLG’s Fresenius client.
The article describes Mr. Rickman’s and his counterpart Christopher Connors’ extensive experience representing FCPA and anti-corruption whistleblowers globally as follows: “Rickman and Connors will be well-known to FCPA defense lawyers and prosecutors alike. The pair have sought to corner the market of FCPA whistleblowers.”
