Smith Anderson Lawyers Author Chapter on North Carolina False Claims Act
Raleigh, N.C. – Two attorneys in Smith Anderson’s Government Contracting practice, Jackson Moore and Lauren Bradley, co-authored the North Carolina chapter for American Bar Association’s new book: State False Claims Acts: A Practitioner’s Guide to the False Claims Laws of the Various States. This new ABA publication is a convenient, single-volume resource that provides an overview of each state’s false claims law and identifies the key similarities and differences with the federal False Claims Act.
With government anti-fraud enforcement on the rise, any organization doing business with state and local governments will benefit from understanding how to avoid submitting false claims. This publication is available for purchase online from the American Bar Association’s website.
The North Carolina False Claims Act, House Bill 1135, was signed into law on August 28, 2009. At that time, Smith Anderson published an assessment of how the law affects businesses in this State. To read this assessment, CLICK HERE.
