  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) March 23, 2017 - The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: False Claims Act/Qui Tam Whistleblowers Litigation: Hot Buttons in 2017 LIVE Webcast.

    Event Synopsis:
    Since its enactment, the False Claims Act (FCA) has become one of the most litigated pieces of federal legislation. The FCA has always been the U.S. taxpayers' number one partner in recovering large sums of money stolen from the U.S. government through fraud and similar misconduct. In 2016 alone, the U.S. government recovered more than $2.04 billion in FCA cases. The FCA is a demonstrably effective tool in combatting fraud against the government, but many nuances and hurdles remain. Counsel involved in these cases must confront numerous procedural and substantive challenges from pre-trial investigations through trial.
    On March 29, a panel of key thought leaders, practitioners, FCA defense attorneys, and FCA qui tam lawyers assembled by The Knowledge Group will offer an extensive discussion of updates regarding the latest significant issues surrounding the FCA. This two-hour LIVE webcast aims to help the audience become well-versed in the recent developments in the FCA landscape and the trends to watch for in 2017 and beyond.
