About Stone and Magnanini
Stone & Magnanini LLP (www.stonemagnalaw.com) is a premiere trial firm with a demonstrated track record of results. Formed by New York and New Jersey top-rated lawyer David Stone, the firm focuses on intellectual property cases and fraud-related litigation, including False Claims Act whistleblower cases. “Whatever the matter, we pride ourselves on our responsiveness and creativity in achieving practical business results for our clients,” notes Stone, who manages the firm. “We view our clients as partners in a joint endeavor, so our ultimate success depends on achieving excellent results for them in both the short- and long-term.”
The firm’s attorneys have worked with clients and the U.S. government to obtain more than $1 billion in revenues, including some of the largest whistleblower recoveries in history. The firm also secured one of the largest intellectual property jury verdicts in New York last year—as voted by the New York Law Journal—in a patent infringement case against a major internet provider.
Since January 2009, the Department of Justice has pulled in more than $13 billion in False Claims Act recoveries and there is no indication the Department will slow enforcement actions any time soon. In recent remarks, Tony West, the acting associate attorney general of the DOJ, told reporters that "the False Claims Act is, quite simply, the most powerful tool that we have to deter and redress fraud.” In 2013, we can likely expect new and expanded DOJ enforcement actions seeking stiff penalties and possible suspension and debarments for firms doing business with the federal government. It is essential for companies to not only understand the False Claims Act, but to be current on the latest enforcement and compliance trends and developments to avoid potential pitfalls and mitigate risk.
A panel of distinguished thought leaders and key experts assembled by The Knowledge Group will chair an interactive webcast, addressing the most significant enforcement and compliance issues, including:
- Overview of the False Claims Act
- Regulatory Updates and Enforcement Developments
- Key Takeaways from Related Cases
- Identify Risks for Potential FCA Violations
- Develop a Robust Compliance Program
- And so much more!
