Emily Stabile, an associate with Phillips & Cohen, has worked on qui tam cases involving healthcare fraud, government procurement fraud and fraud in the mortgage industry. She also handles whistleblower claims filed under the whistleblower programs of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Internal Revenue Service.
Ms. Stabile played an important role in the complex whistleblower case against Office Depot, which alleged that the office supply giant overcharged more than 1,000 California cities, counties, school districts and other government entities. Office Depot paid $68.5 million to settle the qui tam case.

Currently, Ms. Stabile serves on the board of Taxpayers Against Fraud’s Young Lawyers Division. She is admitted to the bar in California.
