Wiley Rein Webinar: False Claims Act Risks for Companies Doing Business With the Federal Government

July 25, 2014

What You Will Hear:

The risk of False Claims Act (FCA) liability for companies doing business with the federal government is not limited to "traditional" false claims submitted during the invoicing and billing process.  Today, the Department of Justice is pursuing FCA cases based on ever-changing legal theories encompassing a wide array of conduct under procurement contracts, grants, and other agreements with the federal government.  Always a staple of government enforcement in the defense and health care industries, the FCA is becoming a new tool for government enforcement in the technology, international trade, communications, financial services, and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as a hammer over small businesses. Join Wiley Rein attorneys for a complimentary webinar providing practical advice to avoid FCA risk areas when doing business with the federal government.

Discussion topics include:

  • Potential FCA landmines throughout the procurement process, from bidding and negotiation to payment and disputes
  • Real world applications of FCA theories on procurement contracts, grants, and other agreements with the government
  • Affirmative steps to take to avoid FCA allegations and respond to investigations

Who Should Attend?

  • Compliance Officers
  • General Counsels
  • Chief Executive Officers
  • Procurement Specialists

Webinar materials will be made available during the program via webcast and subsequently distributed to participants for future reference. Wiley Rein will assist you with CLE credit.
