If you contract with the federal or state government or receive federal monies through participation in federal or state programs, you are at risk for potential exposure to damages arising from violations of the civil False Claims Act. Highly regulated industries like healthcare, construction, education and others have become targets for these qui tam lawsuits (more commonly known as whistleblower lawsuits), as provisions of the law expand and enforcement becomes more aggressive.
Our attorneys have extensive experience assisting clients in connection with allegations of violation of the civil False Claims Act and other federal statutes relating to government procurement and claims. We guide contractor clients in compliance measures to prevent claims. We also help clients conduct internal investigations, respond to subpoenas or civil investigative demands and provide defense in civil or criminal proceedings involving allegations of false claims, fraud or other statutory violations.
Our Government Contracts attorneys experienced in False Claims Act defense often partner with the firm’s Government Compliance, Investigations & Litigation and White Collar Criminal Defense attorneys for complete representation in whistleblower matters.
