Presented by the NVTC General Counsel Committee

November 28, 2012

The False Claims Act, Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley: The Wide World of Whistleblowers

Technology companies, especially government contractors and publicly traded companies, are increasingly exposed to the significant risk of becoming the target of lucrative whistleblower lawsuits. Join the NVTC General Counsel Committee as a panel of experts with experience in government, in-house, and acting as outside defense and plaintiffs' counsel will discuss the latest developments in the law governing whistleblower litigation. Panelists will also offer practical advice for how to institute processes to successfully manage and resolve internal whistleblowing complaints, how to address external complaints and how to manage the related employment issues.

Register today to find out how to protect your business from the increased threat from these types of issues.
