Biography

Holding corporations, healthcare facilities, and the government responsible for illegal conduct that violates the social contract that we all rely on – this is what Clay Wire strives to do with every client he represents.

Clay is an advocate for those who engage in the selfless and difficult act of whistleblowing, and those who want to see fraudsters held accountable. The core of Clay’s practice is representing whistleblowers when they suffer retaliation or when they choose to report illegal conduct. He is committed to protecting clients and earning their trust through hard work and dedication. He engineers successful outcomes for clients in state, federal, and administrative trials and appeals.

Clay prides himself on successfully and strategically litigating and trying complex cases. As a result, he often represents professionals, such as doctors, nurses, in-house counsel, corporate executives, and accountants, when they blow-the-whistle on illegal conduct, are wrongfully terminated from their position, or are not paid what they are owed. Oftentimes, when a high level executive or professional decides to blow-the-whistle on illegal conduct, many complicated ethical, fiduciary, contractual, and regulatory issues arise. Clay and his team have in-depth experience in addressing such complicating and risky issues.

Clay is one of the few attorneys who has represented in-house General Counsel and Associate General Counsel who have suffered retaliation for reporting their employer’s illegal conduct. Such cases present a complex web of statutory, regulatory, and ethical issues. For example: How do the ethical rules limit or affect an in-house attorney’s ability to bring a claim? When and to whom may an in-house counsel report illegal conduct? What documents and information can an in-house attorney take to prove up her claim?
