    2021 PCL Public Procurement Symposium: Ethical Issues in False Claims Act Investigations and Litigation [CC]

    Join us for a panel that explores the ethical issues that can arise from investigations and litigation under the False Claims Act. Panelists will discuss a variety of ethical issues surrounding the FCA, such as when an attorney accepts documents from a relator that are subject to a confidentiality agreement or communicates with a party represented by a company's in-house counsel; and issues of liability under the professional rules of responsibility if they threaten or file frivolous qui tam claims on behalf of a relator.

    A variety of ethical issues can arise in the context of investigations and litigation under the False Claims Act (FCA). Corporate clients and their officers, directors or employees may have conflicts of interest that must be considered before an attorney agrees to provide joint representation in an FCA matter. The attorney-client privilege and Upjohn also must be well-understood to ensure protection of documents related to internal investigations.

    Moreover, the collection of evidence in an FCA case can create a range of ethical issues, such as when an attorney accepts documents from a relator that are subject to a confidentiality agreement or communicates with a party represented by a company's in-house counsel. Attorneys also may face liability under the professional rules of responsibility if they threaten or file frivolous qui tam claims on behalf of a relator, or if they become the relator and file a qui tam action against a former client. The panel will cover these issues and other topics in a wide-ranging discussion of the ethical rules that are frequently implicated in FCA matters, including the Model Rules of Professional Conduct's tenets in Rule 1.4: Communications, Rule 1.6: Confidentiality of Information, Rule 1.7: Conflicts of Interest: Current Clients, Rule 1.13: Organization as Client, Rule 3.1: Meritorious Claims & Contentions, and Rule 4.3: Dealing with Unrepresented Persons.
