About Stephen Kohn

Stephen M. Kohn is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading qui tam and whistleblower attorneys. Kohn represents Danske Bank whistleblower Howard Wilkinson in the largest money laundering scandal in world history ($230 billion), and successfully represented Greek whistleblowers whose information triggered a $320 million sanction against Novartis drug company under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. He also won the largest ever individual tax whistleblower reward for UBS whistleblower Bradley Birkenfeld ($104 million), and the largest ever reward ever paid to an individual under the related action provisions of the IRS, SEC and DOJ programs ($177 million).

His record of winning whistleblower cases dates back to 1984. His successful advocacy has resulted in landmark precedents in whistleblower and qui tam law. Kohn has also helped draft key whistleblower legislation and regulatory rules, including those incorporated into the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Dodd-Frank Act, the IRS Qui Tam whistleblower amendments, the AML Whistleblower Law, and the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act.
