Event Synopsis:

With record recoveries, the Department of Justice, qui tam whistle blowers, and state Attorneys General have continued to step up their enforcement efforts in False Claims Act cases. Armed with enhanced legislation and stricter enforcement tools, DOJ and other agencies, are able to more easily identify and act on fraud. Now, more than ever, government contractors in various industries including defense, aerospace, healthcare, and financial services, must be mindful of this powerful statute and vigilant about compliance or face stiff penalties.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners to help business executives, consultants, auditors, and attorneys understand the most significant issues and recent developments with respect to the increased risks associated with the False Claims Act.
