On-Demand CLE: Profiting from Whistleblower, Qui Tam, and False Claim Cases

Over $40 billion has been recovered through whistleblower, Qui Tam, and False Claims Act cases. The demand for attorneys fluent in the latest practices, procedures, and case law has never been greater as the federal government’s whistleblower program has recently issued record setting awards. The average award today in a whistleblower settlement is nearly $450k, while many cases have been settled for well into the seven and eight figure range. At the same time, the latest amendments affecting this practice area have generated a need for counsel to handle related litigation, investigations, and compliance. The Rossdale faculty for the seminar features a national authority on the topic, who will describe successful strategies for the plaintiff’s and defense bar, recent incentive programs, collecting information in a digital age, settlement incentives, post-settlement obligations, and ethical considerations. Registration includes online access to course and reference materials that serve as a helpful guide to the numerous topics and techniques discussed in the program.
