Government Contractors Forum: Government Investigations and Enforcement - Cooperation, Defense, and Settlement Strategies


LIVE at the offices of Smith Pachter & McWhorter, 8000 Towers Crescent Dr., Suite 900, Vienna, Virginia OR BY WEBCAST from your desk.


Government contractors facing government investigations for criminal or civil fraud – ranging from FCPA to the False Claims Act – must evaluate carefully how to deal with the government agency or, at times, multiple agencies who may be involved: DOJ, SEC, and suspension and debarment officials.  A careful approach to cooperation, defense, and settlement in responding is critical to ensure the most successful outcome possible: one that mitigates both financial and other penalties, such as being required to accept a corporate guilty plea, imposition of a compliance monitor, or suspension and debarment, and that best preserves the company’s reputation in the marketplace.  This program will discuss recent cases and highlight key strategies and tips for how to conduct internal investigations to best support the requirements of addressing a government investigation, how to interact with and provide information to the various types of regulatory and enforcement agencies that may become involved, and how to best portray a company’s remediation efforts.



Presented by John Pachter and Iris Bennett of Smith Pachter McWhorter and an in-house panelist.
