Scott Oswald is an accomplished trial lawyer who has brought more than 40 trials to verdict and recovered more than $300 million in judgments and settlements for his clients, in cases ranging from wrongful termination to employer fraud.

Mr. Oswald litigates employment lawsuits nationwide, with a special focus on whistleblower matters – including qui tam law, which can deliver monetary rewards to employees who expose fraud against the government. Since founding The Employment Law Group® law firm, he has spoken up for workers before federal agencies and on Capitol Hill, and has broken new ground in whistleblower law:

“We leverage every legal tool to fight for our clients as hard as we possibly can,” Mr. Oswald says. “Our goal is to understand and achieve their goals, as long as it’s within the bounds of the law, ethics, and professionalism.”
