What is the False Claims Act?

Posted on December 27th, 2018 by Tom Zimmerman

The Federal False Claims Act is an effective way to ensure the federal government is not a victim of fraud. In 1986, there were further amendments to the False Claims Act due to the accounts of abuses in the defense contracting industry. Since the amendments were passed, the act has become the federal government’s most effective tool in fighting against waste, fraud, and abuse in federal spending. Understanding the ins and outs of the False Claims Act is crucial to helping our clients litigate these cases.
