Former UBS senior client adviser, Bradley Birkenfeld, wound up costing the bank giant close to $800 million after he exposed their massive tax evasion cover-up scheme. However, in so doing, he had to reveal confidential information that later wound up in the hands of the FBI and IRS.

Birkenfeld is now suing his legal council for failing to provide the proper forms that would have secured his protection as a whistleblower, according to Courthouse News. He subsequently faced a fine of $30,000, federal indictment and a 40-month prison sentence.
