Bradley’s Government Enforcement and Investigations Practice Group is pleased to present the False Claims Act: 2018 Year in Review, our annual review of significant False Claims Act (FCA) cases, developments and trends. Now in its seventh year, the review continues to grow and evolve, reflecting the changing landscape of FCA enforcement. In 2018, some things did change—overall recoveries were at the lowest point since 2009, reflecting significantly reduced enforcement in the financial services and defense sectors—while others, such as the continued focus on the healthcare industry, remained remarkably constant. As always, we cover these trends and the major developments in FCA jurisprudence from last year. And beyond our analysis of the FCA year gone by, readers will also find our brief look at what may be ahead in 2019—all in a practitioner-friendly format designed for easy reference as a paper or digital resource.
