SMCC partner Robert Muse said the firm had identified Derry solicitor Des Doherty as 'someone we can work with as we investigate cases in Ireland and further afield in Europe in view of the among of American companies based there.'  SMMC specializes in Qui Tam laws, which gives would-be whistleblowers financial incentive to take action.  The laws have helped US government authorities recover over $34b.  Mr Doherty said: “Basically, I’ll be a conduit for anyone who comes forward.”
