You could sue alleging extortion where a company threaten to inform the government or restitution. If they prosecute, I doubt there case will be dismiss on the grounds that they demanded restitution. Perhaps you report it to governmental authorities as extortion and notify the company of such report but do not request any monies in exchange for not reporting the extortion charge against the company as that may be extortion.
