False Claims Act Webinar: Implied Certification related to the False Claims Act

A discussion of the much-anticipated Supreme Court case Universal Health Services, Inc. v. United States ex rel. Escobar, No. 15-7 (U.S.).

Deloitte will be hosting a webinar where Mark Burroughs, managing director, Deloitte & Touche LLP and Anne Robinson, counsel at Latham & Watkins, will discuss the much-anticipated Supreme Court case Universal Health Services, Inc. v. United States ex rel. Escobar, No. 15-7 (U.S.). The outcome of the Escobar case will likely determine the scope of the federal False Claims Act’s “implied certification” theory of liability. The Court’s ruling is poised to vastly expand the scope of False Claims Act liability, further increasing the risk of government contracting and the need to focus on international controls and risk mitigation strategies.

This event is complimentary.
