When a company or organization grows so large and powerful that corruption goes unnoticed, it’s important to have a system of checks and balances in place. This is what whistleblowing is for.


If you have been falsely accused by a whistleblower, your reputation is not a complete loss. In fact, many whistleblowing cases are settled quietly, out of court once the emotions, needs, and boundaries have been aired. It is imperative that during this time, between when you first were accused and when the case is settled, you should not deal directly with the whistleblower and you should not do anything that could be considered retaliation. Otherwise, you’ll end up facing double the corporate lawsuits.

Speak With Our Attorney


Before heading to your boss’ office with accusations, try a more subtle and sound approach. Meet with a business attorney and have a discussion about your potential whistleblowing case. A professional attorney will be able to advise as to whether or not you have the type of information to hold up in court. If so, our Northwest Business Law Group team will direct the next steps to take toward going public in a way that will improve your results while managing your reputation.

Corporate Lawsuit Attorney


  • 100% Satisfaction with Communication
         Eric helped represent me with a very large lawsuit that was brought against me. 100% satisfaction with communication. It was timely; it was appropriate; it was insightful, thoughtful. From beginning to end, it was very clear that my legal counsel, Eric Helmy was by far the better warrior, so to speak, the intellectually, strategically, and we clearly outthought the opposition from beginning to end, and I don’t think they knew what hit them. The opposition didn’t have any choice but to really retreat and drop the suit, so I was very satisfied.

  • He'll Respond to Me When I Need Him.
         …I believe my law case never would have got off the ground without Eric’s attention to what was happening to me. I’m an excavator, in the tough times that have come along, there’s been several instances where the big developers think they’re not going to pay me, and I feel like they’re trying to [take advantage of] me. I can call Eric,…and he’ll come down and go sit in a meeting with me and all these big developers are writing checks before we’re getting up and leaving. …It’s nice to know that I have him on retainer, and he’ll respond for me when I need him. That’s the personal service you’ll get with him…

  • We Left With Important Information and a Plan
         Our first meeting with Eric was very helpful. We left with important information and a plan, and now we have our own corporation! Eric was invaluable in the writing of our bylaws and in advising our business setup. He also had great insights into owning a business in the Northwest. Having him on our company’s side makes us feel ready for the legal hurdles we will face as our business grows.
    Jaclyn Stewart CEO of Jurevicious Studios
  • We are Very Pleased
