Summary

Before joining Finch McCranie to represent whistleblowers in 2017, Renee Brooker was a long-time Federal Prosecutor in a senior leadership position at the United States Department of Justice. At DOJ, she had oversight for hundreds of settlements and judgments, with nearly $6 billion in False Claims Act and FIRREA recoveries, and enforced these laws:

• The False Claims Act/The Whistleblower Law
• The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA)—an enforcement tool used to deter fraud by financial institutions
• The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)

Renée’s expertise includes these industries: pharmaceutical, health care (hospice, nursing, ambulance, medical device, laboratories, provider practice groups, specialists, doctors, nurses, hospitals), defense, financial services, insurance, tobacco products, higher education and for-profit schools.

Renée has received numerous awards from the Attorney General and the Council of the Inspectors General for recovering billions of dollars from financial institutions and the pharmaceutical industry under the False Claims Act Whistleblower Law and for prosecuting the tobacco industry for civil racketeering.
