Event summary

After significantly impacting the use of implied certification cases, the US Supreme Court’s 2016 Escobar decision continues to influence the US government’s responses to pending cases. There is also a continuous increase in activities with regard to investigations of all potential false claims lawsuits, with or without the government’s intervention. Furthermore, as the Trump administration sustains the aggressive enforcement of the False Claims Act, along with increased statutory penalties, the risks for businesses are also amplified. 

Join a panel of FCA litigators and key thought leaders as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of bringing or defending against FCA claims, including an in-depth analysis of the current trends and recent court rulings surrounding this significant topic. Listen as they provide the audience with an overview of what lies ahead of the false claims and qui tam enforcement landscape. Speakers will also provide practical tips and strategies in bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.
