We are pleased to announce that Brian Hill served as editor for "The False Claims Act and Government Contracts: The Intersection of Federal Government Contracts, Administrative Law, and Civil Fraud," published by the American Bar Association. Hill also wrote the book's Introduction and co-authored the "Remedies" chapter with Adam Feinberg. The book is designed to serve as a first stop for any inside, outside, government or relator's counsel who faces issues at the intersection of the False Claims Act (FCA) and federal government contracting. The chapters describe the regulated nature of government contracting and the players in the policy and enforcement communities who regulate and police government contracts; the complex process for initiating, litigating, and resolving FCA actions, and how those processes interact with the complexities of performing and closing out government contracts; the substantive requirements and evolving evidentiary challenges of litigating a FCA case in a government contracts context; and possible modifications to the FCA that have the potential to improve compliance and reduce costs, as well as additional areas of likely FCA enforcement outside of the traditional realms of government contracts and government-funded healthcare. Hill and Feinberg are both Members in the firm's Litigation practice. Feinberg also serves on the firm's Executive Committee.
