What to Expect

Join the VBA Criminal Law Section for "When the Whistle Blows: Recent Developments and Trends in False Claims Act Litigation." The program will begin with welcome remarks by Zach Terwilliger, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, followed by two 90-minute CLE sessions. Make plans to join us at noon for a keynote presentation by the @CrimeADay Guy, Mike Chase, and lunch (included in your registration fee). This is not a program you want to miss! 

8:45 a.m. - 10:15 p.m – Lifecycle of a False Claims Act Case: From Whistleblower to Global Resolution (90 min CLE)

Pursuing fraud and false claims against the government remains an important DOJ enforcement priority and results in the recovery of billions of dollars annually.  A moderated panel that includes a qui tam relator's counsel, federal and state prosecutors and a defense counsel will discuss the lifecycle of a False Claims Act case, offering unique perspectives for representing the various parties involved. The panel will address the initiation of qui tam and False Claims Act cases, the government’s decision whether to intervene, and cooperation between the qui tam relator and the government. The panel will also discuss common issues presented in False Claims Act investigations and litigation and offer strategies for representing companies and individuals subject to its reach.

10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. – Regulatory Trends and the False Claims Act: Policies, Priorities and Payouts (90 min CLE)

While health care and the Department of Defense consistently comprise the bulk of False Claims Act cases and recovery, many industries are susceptible to False Claims Act scrutiny. This distinguished panel will discuss False Claims Act enforcement priorities and forecast industries that may be at risk. The panel will also address DOJ’s recent cooperation guidance that further incentivizes companies to voluntarily disclose misconduct. As the panel will discuss, cooperation credit can result in substantial reduction of damages and civil penalties. Finally, the panel will discuss the application of the so-called Granston Memo, identifying the circumstances under which DOJ may dismiss a qui tam action under the False Claims Act.
