The False Claims Act continues to generate large financial awards and settlements – and great consternation for those in the healthcare, pharma and defense contract industries. Since the Act was revised and expanded almost 20 years ago, over $8 billion has been recovered, and new actions, areas of exposure, and reports of enormous damage awards appear regularly in the news. And although healthcare has been most strongly in the sights in the past few years, the defense industry is definitely back on the radar and in the news again, and it’s likely we will only see fraud allegations increase as defense spending is stepped up in the war on terrorism.

As quickly as new exposures develop and new waves of suits are launched, defense counsel need to work fast to devise new defenses against the latest crop of FCA allegations. It may be easier than you think to find your organization or your client facing allegations that a false statement was made or a false claim submitted.

In response, American Conference Institute has developed the National Forum on False Claims Act Enforcement and Litigation. In two information-packed days, you’ll obtain up-to-the-minute information and practical techniques from seasoned practitioners with plenty of hands-on experience, so you’ll have what you need to represent your clients most effectively.
