Join the ABA White Collar Crime Committee's Philadelphia Young Lawyers Division and Ballard Spahr LLP for a cocktail reception and an interactive panel discussion focusing on the False Claims Act. There can be no denying that the FCA has emerged as one of the government's favorite tools in combating fraud against government programs. In 2010 alone, the government recovered more than $3 billion in civil settlements and judgments related to FCA enforcement. 

Among other things, panelists will address the following subtopics: 

  • Recent FCA case developments and settlements
  • March and July 2010 amendments to the FCA
  • Interplay between the FCA and state qui tam laws
  • Dodd-Frank amendments to the FCA that enhance
    whistleblower protections
