Whistleblower suits are now generating large settlements and criminal investigations.
These suits lead to aggressive prosecutions, which are usually met with minimal resistance, which further encourages enforcement officials to  continue to use laws, like the FCA, for trade and other business violations
To avoid bad headlines, loss of shareholder value, possible criminal sanctions or higher civil penalties, corporations faced with customs and other business type claims are choosing to settle instead of litigating.   
There are, however, potential FCA defences for companies alleged to have committed fraud.  You will learn what they are and how to use them.

You can participate in our FCA webinar from a location of your choosing – your home, your office, or a client/customer location are all perfectly suitable for learning in a webinar environment.

Whistleblower suits! You will learn that there is a new reality concerning international trade and other business violations.  The U.S. government is likely to bring criminal charges whenever possible in conjunction with the use of civil law statutes.  This is designed to increase the risk and severity of penalties for trade and other violators.  
Use of the False Claims Act ("FCA"), codified at 31 USC §§ 3729-33, was once extremely rare.  Until the 1986 amendments to this 1863 law (which is also known as "Lincoln's Law" -- legislation designed to combat corrupt war profiteers during the Civil War), this was an under-utilized tool.  Since 2008, however, the DOJ has been more than willing to use the FCA to prosecute those who commit fraud upon federal, state and local governments.  The U.S. Government has been recovering many billions of dollars from trade violators every year.
Companies involved in the import and export of goods or technology are at risk of violating the FCA. So are companies that may risk or become involved in:
  • Pharmaceutical Fraud 
  • Off-Label Promotion Fraud
  • Healthcare Fraud
  • Defence Contracting Fraud
  • Government Contracting Fraud
  • Financial Fraud
  • Research Grant Fraud
