Washington, D.C., partners Jeffrey Lopez and Mike McManus, will co-present “Mitigate Your Company’s Risk of Liability Under the False Claims Act” -- an interactive webcast presented in conjunction with Deloitte. The Civil False Claims Act (FCA) is one of the fastest growing areas of federal litigation. With FCA settlements and judgments reportedly totaling $3.1 billion in fiscal year 2010, companies who contract directly or indirectly with the United States government are advised to consider whether they are at risk of such litigation. Further, the Dodd-Frank Act has vested the same type of whistleblower incentives to parties who report violations of Federal Securities laws and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to the SEC.
This program will focus on how to assess and mitigate risk of liability under the FCA, as well as discuss recent proposed whistleblower rules related to the Dodd-Frank.
