Vorys lawyers strive to generate the best possible results for our False Claims Act clients. At Vorys:
- We begin building our clients’ False Claims Act defense on day one. We recognize the importance of conducting our own investigation into the relator’s allegations in addition to responding appropriately to any government subpoenas. We recognize that a subpoena is not just a request for documents — it is an opportunity to anticipate the qui tam allegations, investigate the underlying issues and frame them for the government.
- After we have conducted our own internal investigation of the issues, we assemble the evidence and present it to the government in the most effective way to discourage the government from intervening in the case. This changes the game — of the $4.9 billion recovered under the False Claims Act in 2012, less than 1% was recovered in non-intervened cases. For this reason, we devote as much focus and attention to the investigation of a False Claims Act case as to the litigation itself.
- Whether the government intervenes in your case or not, you’re in good hands. With decades of False Claims Act experience, we are familiar with the issues that you are likely to face and know how to develop FCA defenses. Using these tools, we have obtained dismissals of numerous False Claims Act cases prior to any discovery.
- We are experienced at working with witnesses and experts to create the building blocks for a successful summary judgment motion, and have a proven track record of success at the summary judgment stage.
- If your case proceeds to trial, we’ve been there — and won.
We’ve successfully represented clients in appellate courts throughout the country, including the United States Supreme Court.
