About Patrick J. Greene

Patrick J. Greene, Jr., a partner at Peckar & Abramson, heads the firm’s Government Practice Group in New York and New Jersey.

In over 30 years of practice, Mr. Greene has advised some of the nation’s largest construction contractors regarding performance and compliance issues in contracting in the public and private sectors, including, especially, federal government contracting. He has prepared, litigated and resolved numerous complex extra work, delay and impact claims on domestic and international construction projects. He also has advised and presented defenses against subcontractor claims and against defective work and delay claims asserted by owners and others. Notably, Mr. Greene successfully presented the seminal Construction Lien Law case before the New Jersey Supreme Court, and tried one of the largest, most complex cases in the history of the United States General Services Board of Contract Appeals (GSBCA). As a result of representing numerous federal contractors, Mr. Greene is especially knowledgeable regarding the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).

An important consideration in defense against defective construction work claims is the availability and application of insurance coverage under commercial general liability, professional malpractice and subcontractor default insurance policies. Mr. Greene and his team are well versed in the complexities of obtaining coverage for occurrences involving construction defects under standard and nonstandard insurance provisions. They also advise regarding the establishment and maintenance of insurance programs, including issues of cost recovery and disclosure under pertinent contract provisions and regulations, such as the FAR cost principles.

Defending a business against a False Claims Act (FCA) liability allegation relating to government contracts, is mostly exhausting and can have a monumental impact on the way the business operates. Additionally, the legal costs of regulatory investigations and related actions under the FCA normally reach to a large amount of money. It is therefore safer for these contractors to have at least an appropriate insurance asset once the government comes knocking at their doorstep. However, it is also crucial that a company understands the coverage and limitations of the insurance it has purchased. Given the varying coverage terms for FCA claims, businesses should work with a well-versed counsel that can help them review the terms of their insurance policies.

In this two-hour live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help companies across industries understand the fundamentals of FCA violations insurance coverage and will offer insights on the recent FCA litigation trends and compliance issues. Speakers will also provide the audience with the best practices in ensuring that their insurance coverage will meet regulatory investigation risks.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

- FCA and Its Complexities
- Recent FCA Litigation Trends
- Insurance Coverage to Mitigate Risks
- Directors & Officers (D&O) and Errors & Omissions (E&O) Policies
- Compliance Issues
- Best Compliance Practices
