When Experience and Skill Matter Most
In the highly regulated Aerospace, Defense and Government Services (“ADG”) industry—where companies often depend heavily on government contracts—the stakes are especially high when it comes to False Claims Act (“FCA”) and procurement fraud investigations.
For decades, we have represented government contractors and their executives in False Claims Act investigations, defense, and litigation. Our team practice draws upon the experience of many former federal prosecutors and leverages capabilities from the firm’s government contracts, employment, insurance recovery, suspension and debarment, and white collar defense practices to help achieve successful outcomes in procurement fraud matters.
Our focus is to resolve FCA matters as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, working to convince the government not to intervene in FCA cases, and resolving matters without litigation. When litigation is necessary, we draw on a seasoned team of trial attorneys (including many former prosecutors), and litigate aggressively in federal and state courts around the country. We also have substantial experience resolving suspension and debarment cases and similar eligibility matters that may arise from an FCA proceeding.
We have successfully represented contractors in defending against FCA allegations involving virtually all forms of alleged misconduct, including cost and labor mischarging, false representations and certifications, GSA Schedule violations (including those based upon pricing and discounting disclosures and domestic preference compliance), export controls, kickbacks, organizational conflicts of interests, and defective pricing violations. We have worked with clients in a wide array of industry segments, including professional services, hardware and software, logistics, finance, pharmaceuticals, medical/surgical devices, and health care services.
