Lane Powell Shareholder Barb Duffy will co-present “Defending Against Plaintiffs’ Firms’ Latest Practices Under the False Claims Act” at 1:15 p.m. on Friday, January 30, at the 5th Annual Preventing and Defending Long Term Care Litigation Forum. The presentation will cover the following topics: who is more likely to be a whistleblower?; trends that encourage plaintiffs’ attorneys to file claims and employees to come forward; worthless service claims, and how they are being pursued and prosecuted criminally; the best defense against False Claims Act (FCA) claims when the Department of Justice decides not to get involved; and how to determine whether to settle or defend when assessing the risk of a substantial verdict in FCA claims. The forum will take place January 29-30 at Conrad Miami in Miami. For more information or to register, visit the event website.
