False Claims Act Litigation (06/22/2020)

Program Number: 30170 Presenter: Reuben A. Guttman, Esq., Adam S. Hoffinger, Esq.

Over the last several years Americans have had a crash course in the role that whistleblowers play in compliance enforcement. No statute gives whistleblowers a greater role than federal and state false claims acts. These statutes not only allow the government to bring suit to address fraud on the government, but they allow private citizens to step into the shoes of the government to bring suit. Now, particularly in a Covid19 era - with trillions of taxpayer dollars poured into the economy - the false claims acts are taking on even greater importance. This seminar will cover: • what you need to know about these laws • who can bring suit? • what bounty provisions exist? • what are the cases that will arise in the Covid19 era? • what are the pleading and evidentiary issues you need to know? Reuben Guttman of Guttman, Buschner & Brooks, PLLC is a leading whistleblower lawyer and coauthor of

Must Lawyers Now Affirmatively Challenge Their Clients? — New ABA Guidance (06/08/2020)

Program Number: 30157 Presenter: Daniel R. Alonso, Esq., Joel Cohen, Esq., Michael S. Ross, Esq.

Lawyers are trusted keepers of their client’s secrets, but sometimes a lawyer might suspect that the client is seeking the lawyer’s advice or assistance to carry out a transaction that is criminal or fraudulent. Existing Rule 1.2(d) of the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct prohibits lawyers from counseling clients to engage in activity the lawyer knows is fraudulent. But what if the lawyer strongly suspects nefarious aims, but does not have actual knowledge? On April 29, 2020, the ABA issued Formal Opinion 491, in which it advised that lawyers have a duty to inquire further if the facts known establish a “high probability” that the client is seeking to use the lawyer’s services to commit a crime or a fraud. The panel of distinguished ethics professionals will explore the contours of this duty to inquire, with concrete guidance and examples of scenarios in which the issue
