False Claims

Any company that receives funds, directly or indirectly, from the government faces exposure to the False Claims Act through allegations that they submitted false claims or made false statements resulting in payment with U.S. government funds. Given the potential for treble damages, penalties of up to $21,563 per false claim or statement, as well as potential suspension and debarment, the stakes are often high in False Claims Act cases. Indeed, the government has recovered over $31 billion under the False Claims Act since 2009.

Our attorneys have decades of experience and a well deserved reputation for expertise in False Claims Act matters. We have handled numerous related investigations and cases for nearly three decades.  Our practice leader formerly co-chaired the False Claims Act practice at another leading firm, where Chambers USA gave its False Claims Act a “top-tier ranking,” noting the “the breadth and depth” of the practice’s technical knowledge and the “deep experience of its leading partners."
