Whistleblower Law Collaborative LLC Member Erica Blachman Hitchings (former Department of Justice Trial Attorney and AUSA) recently sat down with four other recent alumni from the Department of Justice for an informative, behind-the-scenes look at how the federal government approaches False Claims Act (FCA) investigations and litigation. The conversation was captured in a series of studio briefings titled “Discussing DOJ Civil Enforcement and False Claims Act Strategies,” produced by Practising Law Institute.
Erica Hitchings enjoyed this opportunity to re-connect with former colleagues Derek Adams, Renée Brooker, Kimberly Friday, and Jennifer Short and discuss the False Claims Act. Each DOJ alum had a unique perspective to share given their diverse roles both within the DOJ and in their current practices. The three-part series thus has something for practitioners across the spectrum of FCA practice – whether in-house, relator, or outside defense counsel – as it provides practical and straightforward tips and observations of trends and best practices from start to finish, all from multiple perspectives.
