False Claims Act/Whistleblower Investigations

False Claims Act/Whistleblower Investigations

Companies doing business with federal and state governments — particularly in the healthcare, defense contracting, energy, and financial services industries — face ever-increasing scrutiny from government regulators and whistleblowers. Central to this legal environment are the federal False Claims Act (“FCA”) and its state-level analogues. These statutes allow cases to be initiated by whistleblowers for treble damages and civil penalties and have led to settlements and judgments in the billions of dollars.

King & Spalding’s False Claims Act experience ranges from high-profile criminal and civil fraud and abuse matters to private, internal corporate compliance and employment issues. In cases requiring delicate interaction with, or a voluntary disclosure to, regulators or an aggressive litigation stance at trial or on appeal, our team is prepared to vigorously defend clients against FCA claims in any context.
