MoFo Webinar: Demystifying the DOJ’s New False Claims Act Guidance (Tues., Jan. 14)

MoForecast Podcast: Predictions on the False Claims Act (FCA)

Morrison & Foerster Government Contracts associate Rachael Plymale will be participating in a webinar with the Knowledge Group, titled “Demystifying the DOJ’s New False Claims Act Guidance: Navigating Implications to the Year Ahead” tomorrow at 12PM EST. Please register using this link for a complimentary** pass, courtesy of Morrison & Foerster.

Earlier in 2019, the Civil Division of the DOJ released formal guidance in clarifying the manner in which the DOJ allocates credit to defendants who cooperate with government investigations in False Claims Act matters. These guidelines emphasize voluntary disclosure and provide insight into actions that could give rise to cooperation credit. Cooperation credit generally results in DOJ’s diluting penalties or damages imposed in an FCA resolution. However, it remains ill-defined how much credit cooperating individuals and companies will take benefit of this. This webinar aims to demystify the DOJ’s guidance and how to mitigate risk.

During this webinar, Rachael and her co-presenter will cover the following topics:

  • DOJ’s New False Claims Act Guidance – An Overview
  • Current Trends and Recent Developments
  • Key Issues
  • Litigation Challenges
  • Measures in Mitigating Risks
