When the federal government passes a large stimulus package, investigations and litigation under the False Claims Act quickly follow.

In this program, Jessica Ortiz and Caleb Hayes-Deats of MoloLamken analyze the types of False Claims Act litigation that are likely to arise following the CARES Act. Attorneys will receive an overview of the False Claims Act’s requirements, the provisions of the CARES Act most likely to trigger litigation, and best practices that companies receiving federal funds can employ to minimize False Claims Act exposure.
