    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.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
     Qui Tam False Claims Act Practice - An Overview, with an Emphasis on Recent Case Law Developments
     Recent Trends and Developments in DOJ's Pursuit of Individual Liability under the False Claims Act
     U.S. ex rel. Escobar - the Latest Hurdles in Proving the Element of Materiality
     Recent Trends in the Use of Statistics in False Claims Act Cases
