Details

This year’s conference will focus on how the False Claims Act (FCA), a law from the 19th Century, is meeting a host of 21st Century challenges that range from telemedicine to cybersecurity to data mining. We’ll also highlight emerging DOJ priorities, including fraud in pandemic-related spending and Medicare Part C.

This annual event, dubbed “the Oscars for False Claims Act nerds” by a 2020 panelist, provides timely perspectives from all sides of the FCA ecosystem: prosecutors, relator-side attorneys, defense counsel, inspectors general, federal judges, and in-house counsel.
