BuckleySandler LLP hosted a webinar on Friday, November 16, 2012, from 1:00 – 2:15 PM ET, focused on the Government’s most recent financial fraud enforcement actions, an overview of recent False Claims Act (FCA) cases and the Government’s increasing use of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA), and what this means for financial institutions that do business with the Government, Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs), and other recipients of federal funds.

BuckleySandler attorneys Andrew L. Sandler, Andrew Schilling, Matthew Previn, and Michelle Rogers covered:

  • A summary of recent enforcement actions by the DOJ, including the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York’s (SDNY) use and expansion of FCA and FIRREA.
  • Understanding what the SDNY’s most recent lawsuits mean for the industry.
  • Challenges facing financial services companies who do business with the Government and the GSEs.
  • Predictions about where the Government may go from here.

This webinar was of particular interest to in-house legal, compliance, and risk management personnel at banks and other financial services providers that do business with the Government, GSEs and other recipients of federal funds.
