David S. Stone, the Managing Partner of Stone & Magnanini LLP will speak at the Knowledge Congress' webcast entitled: "False Claims Act: Enforcement and Compliance Issues Explored." This event is a two-hour LIVE interactive webcast that is scheduled for March 13, 2013 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm (ET) where you have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions.
Since January 2009, the Department of Justice has pulled in more than $13 billion in False Claims Act recoveries and there is no indication the Department will slow enforcement actions any time soon. In recent remarks, Tony West, the acting associate attorney general of the DOJ, told reporters that "the False Claims Act is, quite simply, the most powerful tool that we have to deter and redress fraud." In 2013, we can likely expect new and expanded DOJ enforcement actions seeking stiff penalties and possible suspension and debarments for firms doing business with the federal government. It is essential for companies to not only understand the False Claims Act, but to be current on the latest enforcement and compliance trends and developments to avoid potential pitfalls and mitigate risk.
David Stone is among the panel of distinguished thought leaders and key experts assembled by The Knowledge Group that will conduct an interactive webcast, addressing the most significant enforcement and compliance issues, including:
- Overview of the False Claims Act
- Regulatory Updates and Enforcement Developments
- Key Takeaways from Related Cases
- Identify Risks for Potential FCA Violations
- Develop a Robust Compliance Program
- And so much more!
