Park Lane Hotel
New York, NY
Blank Rome Partner Justin A. Chiarodo will be a speaker at the American Conference Institute’s (“ACI”) 6th Advanced Forum on False Claims and Qui Tam Enforcement, being held January 28 and 29, 2019, at the Park Lane Hotel in New York, NY.
Justin’s session, “Beware of the Expanding Reach of the FCA: A Survey of New At-Risk Industries and Emerging Theories of Liability,” will take place on Tuesday, January 29, from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m., and he will be joined by Mayer Brown LLP Partner Marcia G. Madsen.
Topics to be covered include:
- Anticipating the AseraCare decision and its impact not only on hospice fraud prosecution, but False Claims cases more broadly
- Reviewing cases where a failure to implement cybersecurity measures led to False Claims liability for defense contractors
- Evaluating “new” vulnerable industries, e.g., private equity firms, tech and communications entities
- Assessing incipient theories of liability
Following opening remarks, the Forum will kick off on Monday with a keynote address by Stephen Cox, Deputy Associate Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice.
In-depth discussions and analysis of the latest guidance, initiatives, and enforcement statistics, will follow. This year’s forum features a faculty of government prosecutors and leading in-house counsel from industries most impacted by the expanding reach of the False Claims Act, including healthcare, pharmaceutical, defense, aerospace, tech & communication, and financial services. Leading defense counsel and relators’ counsel, who have defended and settled these cases, will also present.
