K&G Law Group Partner Zachary Kitts is named “Qui Tam Lawyer of the Year”
It is always nice to be included in any kind of honors list, but this year I am honored to announce my selection as “Qui Tam Lawyer of the Year” by the publication Best Lawyers in America. Hopefully the addition of “Qui Tam Law” as a category in these honors listings means practice under the federal False Claims Act and Virginia Fraud Against Taxpayers Act is coming into its own as a practice area, although it is still very much a niche speciality.
This is the first year that a lawyer has been selected from each practice area as lawyer of the year. According to the Best Lawyers press release, Lawyer of the Year honorees receive this award based on their overall feedback within specific practice areas and metropolitan regions. “Lawyer of the Year” recognitions were awarded in 137 practice areas across 182 metropolitan regions.
For the 2020 Edition of The Best Lawyers in America, 8.3 million votes were analyzed, which resulted in the inclusion of more than 62,000 lawyers, or approximately 5% of lawyers in
private practice in the United States.
