              This optional introductory panel is intended for those who do not have broad experience with the civil False Claims Act or

9:00 a.m.     Looking Back and Looking Ahead: What $30 Billion in Recoveries and 25 Years of False Claims
              Act Litigation and Enforcement Tell Us about the Future
              Panelists: John T. Boese; Neil V. Getnick; Peter B. Hutt II; John R. Phillips; Sara Winslow
              Moderator: Joyce Branda
              Recently the Department of Justice celebrated the 25th anniversary of the watershed 1986 amendments to the False
              Claims Act, and over $30 billion has been recovered under the FCA since those amendments. This panel of experts,
              which has been involved in FCA litigation and enforcement throughout this time, will look back on the developments
              in the law since 1986 and discuss what that history and development tells us about the future of the FCA and qui tam

10:00 a.m.    Investigation of a False Claims Act Case
              Panelists: Suzanne E. Durrell; Gejaa Gobena; Kathleen McDermott; Laura F. Laemmle-Weidenfeld
              Moderator: Jamie Ann Yavelberg
              In every FCA case, the government investigation is crucial because both the relator and the defense are seeking to
              influence the government intervention decision, and many cases are settled before any formal government action is
              started. This panel will discuss the various issues involved in this pre-filing government investigation, including issues
              of privilege, confidentiality, discovery, and presentations by the relator, the government, and the defense. The panel will
              also discuss corporate disclosure obligations during this period.

11:30 a.m.    Recent Developments on Liability
              Panelists: Michael Granston; Daniel Meron; Marc S. Raspanti; Linda Wawzenski
              Moderator: Jonathan L. Diesenhaus
              This panel will concentrate on developing liability issues in the past year, including the express and implied false
              certification cases, materiality and causation, presentment, and government knowledge.

12:45 p.m.    Break - Luncheon Keynote Speaker: Stuart F. Delery

2:15 p.m.     Recent Developments on Damages and Penalties
              Panelists: Jamie M. Bennett; Paul Kaufman; Katherine A. Lauer; Sara McLean; Robert S. Salcido
              Moderator: Michael A. Sullivan
              The focus of this panel will be on the calculation and proof of FCA damages, particularly in cases where the damages are
              not easily ascertainable, as well as the assessment of civil penalties.

3:30 p.m.     Break

3:45 p.m.     Breakout Sessions

              Ethan M. Posner | Moderator: Sanford V. Teplitzky
              This panel will review the unique issues that arise when the False Claims Act is used as a fraud and enforcement tool
              against pharmaceutical and device manufacturers and other healthcare providers. It will also discuss False Claims Act
              cases based on violations of the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark law.

              B. FCA Enforcement in Procurement and Nontraditional Areas
              Panelists: Frederic M. Levy; Kevin M. McCall; Vince McKnight; Kathleen S. Tighe; Joseph D. West
              Moderator: Michal Tingle
              Procurement cases remain one of the biggest sources of FCA litigation, but an increasing number of qui tam cases are
              filed involving other types of federal funding. This panel will discuss FCA enforcement in the procurement field, as well
              as the unique nature of non-traditional FCA cases, especially those involving oil and gas, “reverse” false claims, grants.

                                                                                        Agenda subject to change without notice.

Agenda - Day 3, Friday, June 8, 2012
9:00 a.m.          Pretrial Procedure: Motions and Discovery Issues: Public Disclosure/Original Source; First to
                   File; Rule 9(b); and Statute of Limitations
                   Panelists: Douglas W. Baruch; David J. Chizewer; Eric W. Sitarchuk; Donald Williamson
                   Moderator: Frederick Morgan, Jr.
                   Every qui tam case that is not settled early involves a wide variety of pretrial motions and procedural issues. This panel
                   will discuss both the strategy and timing of these motions and current case law, with special emphasis on Rule 9(b),
                   summary judgment motions, and discovery.

10:30 a.m.         Break

10:45 a.m.         State Qui Tam Enforcement
                   Panelists: John H. Beisner; Charles W. Gambrell, Jr.; Monica P. Navarro; Jay Speers
                   Moderator: Michael I. Behn
                   Over twenty-three states now have qui tam laws, and the value of recoveries obtained under these laws is skyrocketing.
                   Congress has recently passed legislation encouraging the remainder of the states to pass such laws. This panel will
                   discuss the current and future course of state qui tam enforcement.

12:00 p.m.         Break (On Your Own)
1:00 p.m.          Breakout Sessions
                   A. Settlement of an FCA Healthcare Case
                   Panelists: Robert K. DeConti; Gabriel Imperato; Robert Thomas; Nicholas Paul
                   Moderator: Andy Mao
                   Settlement of an FCA case against a healthcare entity is both common and complex. This panel of relator, DOJ, defense
                   and agency experts will explain the legal, practical and common sense rules, written and unwritten, that get the parties to an
                   agreed “number,” get approval by the parties, the government and the court, and then avoid collateral consequences that
                   may arise from the settlement.

                   B. Settlement of an FCA Procurement Case
                   Panelists: Marcia G. Madsen; Paul B. Martins; Richard A. Pelletier; Robert L. Vogel
                   Moderator: Judith Rabinowitz
                   FCA cases against government contractors are commonly settled but reaching the proper settlement amount is only the
                   beginning. The panel will help those representing all sides to understand how to best reach an acceptable settlement,
                   negotiate an agreement that gets approval, and avoid the suspension and debarment issues that inevitably arise.

                   Moderator: Consuelo Woodhead
                   Because of the unique three-party process and the close relationship among the parties, qui tam litigation
                   engenders a host of ethical issues. This panel will discuss the ethical issues from the relator, the defendant, and the
                   government perspectives.
