Blank Rome Partner Jennifer Short will be a speaker at the [Virtual] 2021 Qui Tam Conference, FCA in Times of Crisis: The Legal, the Practical, the Inevitable Changes to FCA Enforcement in the Wake of a Pandemic, presented by the Federal Bar Association’s Qui Tam Section. The conference will be held Wednesday, February 17, through Friday, February 19, 2021, as an online event.
As conference co-chair, Jennifer will help kick off the conference during “Welcome Remarks & Keynote Presentation,” which will also include remarks by Senator Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Brian Boynton (Acting Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division, U.S. Department of Justice).
This year’s conference will focus on the False Claims Act (“FCA”) in times of crisis, including changes in enforcement priorities that may follow the COVID-19 pandemic. This annual event provides timely perspectives from all sides of the FCA ecosystem: prosecutors, relator-side attorneys, defense counsel, inspectors general, federal judges, and in-house counsel.
