Since the 1990s, contractors working on public projects have experienced heightened scrutiny by government watchdogs when it comes to materials, equipment, and payment applications. State and Federal false claims laws are designed to discover and punish fraud perpetrated by those who contract with government agencies. Given the enormous penalties and stigma associated with allegations of false claims violations, and the fact that public works contractors remain in the crosshairs of enforcement agencies, contractors occasionally need assistance in complying with false claims laws. The Los Angeles False Clams Act Lawyers of Hunt Ortmann have counseled numerous contractors regarding their obligations under the False Claims Act. We have also successfully prosecuted and defended False Claims Act violations on behalf of our clients.
