For his young career, Ben Bucy has significant experience in complex litigation, focusing on whistleblower cases under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act. Ben is actively involved in investigating and analyzing potential whistleblower actions as well as prosecuting and litigating Frohsin Barger & Walthall’s ongoing cases. Ben also focuses on researching and monitoring administrative law, particularly the evolving field of antidumping and countervailing duties as well as the remedies available to those injured by trade law violations.
As an integral member of the Frohsin Barger & Walthall team since 2013 and working with the firm throughout his graduate program, Ben has been involved with a number of the firm’s cases, including substantial experience as a member of a Department of Justice trial team in a False Claims Act jury trial. In the field of international trade law, Ben has worked on multiple successful antidumping order scope requests as well as a successful antidumping evasion qui tam case.
Further developing his in-depth knowledge of hospice fraud, Ben worked as a research assistant on Jim Barger’s seminal law review article: “Life, Death, & Medicare Fraud: The Corruption of Hospice And What the Private Public Partnership Under the False Claims Act is Doing About it” American Criminal Law Review, Georgetown (February 2016). One of Ben’s primary contributions to the publication was researching and developing the Appendix section of the article, which provides a full description of the claims, litigation pattern and outcome of every False Claims Act hospice fraud case, the first such database of its kind.
