The Fine Art of Settling an FCA Case

An FBA Qui Tam Section Zoom Roundtable


July 21, 2020
12:30 EDT

Settlement is a common outcome for cases filed under the False Claims Act, especially where the government decides to intervene — and many of these settlements share standard elements. Still, the *negotiation* of settlements remains a fine art that varies widely depending on the players involved, the stage of investigation, and the institutional interests at stake.

This Zoom Roundtable will offer an insider's look at the settlement process, with frank assessments of what is *truly* negotiable — and where savvy counsel should focus their efforts. We'll talk about typical DOJ practices, who has leverage at each stage, and special considerations such as regulatory consequences, the power of interested government agencies, and the settlement of non-intervened cases.

This event is organized by the Qui Tam Section of the Federal Bar Association.
