Qui Tam Quarterly - The Department of Justice False Claims Act Policy Issue
In this second installment of Qui Tam Quarterly, K&L Gates breaks down two policy statements by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), providing an analysis of both (1) the 2018 "Granston Memo" and related case law; as well as (2) the recent policy guidance on providing cooperation credit for self-disclosures in False Claims Act (FCA) cases. We go beyond the press releases and sound bites to address the practical impacts of these policies and what the guidance means for practitioners and the clients they advise.
