WHY ATTEND

In the wake of last year’s record-breaking $5.6 billion in final FCA judgments and settlements, the DOJ’s enforcement activity in 2022 continues to outpace even that of 2021.


The DOJ continues to ramp up its investigations of pandemic-related fraud, as well as its enforcement efforts against Medicare Advantage organizations and the telehealth industry.  And we are also seeing the first DOJ cybersecurity fraud actions being brought under the FCA – with a clear signal that more of these cases will be on the horizon, as well as rising FCA enforcement against private equity firms based on the conduct of their portfolio companies.

By all accounts, these latest trends signal sustained and aggressive enforcement efforts by the government and qui tam relators alike.

Join us for 2 days live in NYC and hear directly from government enforcers, cross-industry compliance and investigations counsel and leading attorneys from the defense and relators’ bar about what you can do to prepare for the next wave of FCA enforcement and stay out of the government’s crosshairs.
