False Claims Act/Qui Tam

We have extensive experience defending clients in qui tam and False Claims Act investigations and lawsuits. Our clients are companies and executives in a wide variety of industries, including large healthcare companies, educational institutions, and major defense and government contractors.

Our lawyers include former Department of Justice trial attorneys as well as long-time defense practitioners who understand the unique aspects of False Claims Act litigation. Because False Claims Act and private qui tam actions often arise amid multiple government investigations, we coordinate closely with our attorneys in our government investigations, white collar defense, government contracts, and healthcare practices to develop strategies that address the complex issues that arise in these parallel proceedings. These include conducting internal investigations, persuading the government not to institute an action or intervene in a pending qui tam suit, and defending clients in parallel criminal investigations or government debarment proceedings. When a False Claims Act lawsuit is unsealed, we have the experience to successfully defend it, and we have obtained numerous dismissals of False Claims Act cases in the early stages of the litigation.
