In this episode of Regulatory Oversight, Stephen Piepgrass welcomes Regulatory Investigations, Strategy + Enforcement Partner Amy Williams and Health Sciences Partner Asher Funk to discuss the similarities and differences between the federal False Claims Act and state false claims acts, as well as emerging trends in state false claims act enforcement.

Our attorneys discuss this shift, the intersection of matters brought under the federal and state false claims acts, areas ripe for enforcement, how our listeners can proactively avoid being on the receiving end of a CID, and what to do if they are.
