Abstract

Defending a business against a False Claims Act (FCA) liability allegation relating to government contracts, is mostly exhausting and can have a monumental impact on the way the business operates. Additionally, the legal costs of regulatory investigations and related actions under the FCA normally reach to a large amount of money. It is therefore safer for these contractors to have at least an appropriate insurance asset once the government comes knocking at their doorstep. However, it is also crucial that a company understands the coverage and limitations of the insurance it has purchased. Given the varying coverage terms for FCA claims, businesses should work with a well-versed counsel that can help them review the terms of their insurance policies.

In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help companies across industries understand the fundamentals of FCA violations insurance coverage and will offer insights on the recent FCA litigation trends and compliance issues. Speakers will also provide the audience with the best practices in ensuring that their insurance coverage will meet regulatory investigation risks.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

- FCA and Its Complexities
- Recent FCA Litigation Trends
- Insurance Coverage to Mitigate Risks
- Directors & Officers (D&O) and Errors & Omissions (E&O) Policies
- Compliance Issues
- Best Compliance Practices
