Defended a Client against Allegations of Violating the False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Act
Mrs. Tupper Butler served as part of the defense team when a global technology firm faced allegations of violating the False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback Act in connection with multiple contracts with the federal government. She took responsibility for the second-largest contract in the case, managing all discovery, conducting and defending depositions, authoring motions relating to discovery and for summary judgment, and participating in settlement discussions with the U.S. Department of Justice and relators’ counsel. She also worked closely with several retained experts in preparing the expert report and took responsibility for preparing daily reports on the activities and status of all of the contracts in the case. The case was ultimately settled, resulting in significant financial savings for the client.
