False Claims Act: Key Considerations for the General Counsel (Nov 2017)

The Justice Department describes the False Claims Act as “the government’s primary civil remedy to redress false claims for government funds and property under government programs and contracts” and recent changes in legislation, case law and government’s enforcement priorities all point towards increased prosecution utilizing the False Claims Act. Understanding the heightened risks is imperative to keeping an organization out of harm’s way or mitigating the damage when facing potential liability under the False Claims Act.
