EventsPartner Jeff Marcus to speak at 2015 American Health Lawyers Association Annual Long Term Care and the Law Conference Concerning Qui Tam Litigation and Investigations.

January 9, 20180

Partner, Jeff Marcus, an attorney with significant experience handling False Claim Act investigations and litigating qui tam cases, will speak on a panel discussion entitled, “How the Sausage is Made: The Government’s Process for Evaluating False Claims Act Whistleblower Allegations and Helping Relators Build Evidence,” at the annual American Health Lawyers Association LONG Term Care and the Law Conference for in-house counsel, compliance officers and law firms that represent long term care and home health care providers.

Qui tam lawsuits have come to dominate the government’s False Claims Act recoveries against the healthcare industry. Indeed, the past few years have resulted in record FCA settlements, and the panelists will highlight some recent cases affecting physician practices and hospitals.

  • In each instance that a qui tam lawsuit is filed, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the relevant judicial district, together with the Department of Justice, evaluates the strength of the claims. The government’s decision to intervene is often viewed as a crucial turning point.
  • The panelists will draw on their experience as federal prosecutors in some of the most active districts in the country to pull back the curtain on the interactions between whistleblowers, their counsel and the government, who often work together to build FCA cases, usually in real time.
  • The speakers will discuss best practices in handling potential whistleblowers, both from a compliance program perspective but also to minimize the risks presented by any active investigation being directed by the government behind the scenes.

When: February 23-25, 2015
Where: New Orleans Riverside Hotel, New Orleans, Louisiana
