    Event Synopsis:
    In the wake of the Escobar case, issues on the uniformity of implied certification and materiality standards in False Claims Act (FCA) lawsuits have emerged. As the impact of the Stephens Institute ruling on the mandatory use of the two-part falsity test on implied certification is hugely affecting the litigation landscape, the lack of consensus among the courts on the nature of the test being advisory rather than mandatory has been causing ambiguity to both defendants and plaintiffs. This, along with the more stringent requirements in proving the materiality of a claim, is changing the FCA litigation landscape.

    With the recent developments on the ever-evolving FCA litigation landscape, government contractors should be able to keep abreast of the changing tides and mitigate the increased risks and liabilities in the post-Escobar landscape. Being well-versed with a comprehensive knowledge of the latest trends and updates is vital to developing effective litigation procedure and strategies

    In this LIVE webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help businesses and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of Implied Certification and Materiality in FCA Lawsuits. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective litigation strategies in light of the recent changes and updates on FCA litigation.

    - FCA Litigation Trends in 2018
    - Implied Certification and Materiality in FCA Lawsuits: Examining the Nooks and Crannies
    - Notable Cases and Rulings
    - Risks and Pitfalls
