Welcome to FCA Update! As the volume of False Claims Act (FCA) investigations and qui tam (or “whistleblower”) litigation continues to rise at a rapid pace, McDermott’s FCA defense practice has launched FCA Update to share our observations and insights regarding the most recent developments in this evolving area of law. Our contributors will include former federal prosecutors and numerous other McDermott lawyers who are experienced in defending clients in FCA investigations and qui tam litigation in courts across the United States, as well as negotiating with regulators such as Office of the Inspector General. We will discuss legal developments under the FCA and related statutes, and what such developments mean for the defense – and avoidance – of investigations and litigation.
We hope you find the blog to be both interesting and helpful, and we welcome your feedback. Our goal is for this blog to serve as a forum through which we can communicate and interact with our readers and we encourage you to comment on our posts. If you have questions or topic suggestions, please let us know via the “Contact” form or feel free to reach out to one of the editors directly.
