FCA & FIRREA: Navigating the Changing Enforcement Landscape for Financial Institutions

Tuesday, June 9, 2015
12:00 PM - 01:00 PM ET
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT
09:00 AM - 10:00 AM PT

Please join us for a one-hour webinar about how the government and private litigants are using the False Claims Act (FCA) and the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) to focus their enforcement activity on financial institutions.

Since the 2008 financial crisis there has been a veritable explosion of government investigations and litigation against financial institutions across the United States. The Department of Justice, in particular, has been active in its civil and criminal investigations of the financial services industry.

This webinar will address what these actions mean to financial services firms, how best to avoid enforcement actions, and—should an action be filed—how to mitigate the repercussions associated with such cases. Our lawyers will also discuss key FCA and FIRREA trends, as well as the future enforcement landscape.

Topics will include:

  • The current enforcement landscape
  • Background to the FCA and FIRREA
  • Recent FCA and FIRREA cases
  • Safeguards and best practices for avoiding FCA and FIRREA actions
  • What’s coming down the pike in this enforcement area
