Crowell & Moring is pleased to announce the launch of our Government Contracts Breakfast Series. All of the sessions will be held in Northern Virginia and focus on issues most important to government contractors. Our second session is described below.

Government contractors face a host of risks in working with the federal government. Among them, the False Claims Act looms large. From treble damages and statutory penalties to suspension and debarment risks and more, contractors confronted with potential FCA liability often find themselves in extremely precarious situations. What’s more, the Mandatory Disclosure rule requires contractors to disclose violations of the FCA as well as significant overpayments, which themselves can trigger FCA liability. This session will explore the interplay between mandatory disclosures and FCA liability, best practices and strategies for internal and government-initiated FCA investigations, as well as recent FCA trends and developments that contractors need to be aware of.

We will provide a CLE certificate of attendance and other materials to use in seeking continuing education credits.

Registration begins at 8:00am.
