Litigation and Enforcement Update: Applying the False Claims Act and FIRREA to Mortgage Lending and Servicing
May 25, 2016
In the aftermath of the financial crisis, the Department of Justice has aggressively used the False Claims Act and FIRREA to recover billions of dollars from mortgage lenders and servicers, including in connection with originating and servicing of government-insured loans as well as loan sales to the GSEs. Our panel has been on the front lines of the developments of this area of law, defending lenders and servicers in government investigations and whistleblower litigation, and advising clients in navigating this challenging and changing regulatory landscape. On Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. EDT/11:00 a.m. PDT, the panel will discuss the government's latest theories, recent court decisions of significance, recent regulatory changes, and trends. The panel will also discuss how to understand, assess, and mitigate risk in this area.
