Patterson Belknap Attorneys to Present PLI Webinar on “State FCA Considerations for Companies Seeking COVID-19 Relief”

March 1, 2021 at 1:00pm2:00pm

This presentation will focus on state and municipal COVID-19 relief funds—and the significant resources at the disposal of state governments, particularly State Attorneys General, to bring enforcement actions similar to those of the DOJ for violating state-implemented false claims acts (“FCAs”). The discussion also will outline some common-sense steps that applicants can take when seeking state or local COVID-19 relief funds to avoid running afoul of state FCAs. Please join Peter C. Harvey, Harry Sandick, and Jake J. Perkowski of Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP as they discuss:

  • How states have provided COVID-19 relief funds, alongside of federal aid (15 minutes)
  • How fraud in connection with the receipt of state funds could lead to liability under state false claims acts (15 minutes)
  • Particular focus on New York and New Jersey aid programs and state law liability (15 minutes)
  • Practical advice for small businesses and nonprofits (15 minutes)
