PHILADELPHIA, PA – Marc S. Raspanti, a name partner in the law firm of Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti, LLP, will present at the 17th Annual Florida Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates Convention on July 18th, 2014 at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida.
The American Board of Trial Advocates, founded in 1958, is an organization dedicated to defending the American civil justice system. Many consider an invitation to join the American Board of Trial Advocates as one of the special highlights of their legal career. ABOTA has chapters in all 50 states, and members constitute a “who’s who” of successful trial lawyers, nationwide. ABOTA is uniquely qualified to speak about the value of the constitutionally mandated jury system as the protector of the rights of persons and property.
Mr. Raspanti will speak on the panel “Qui Tam – Qui What?” The panel will discuss perspectives from an experienced government counsel, relator’s counsel, and defense counsel. As relator’s counsel, Mr. Raspanti will discuss federal and state False Claims Acts, how investigations typically proceed, and health care fraud prosecutions under the Act.
Mr. Raspanti is recognized as one of the most successful, skilled, and experienced qui tam attorneys in the United States. Since 1989, Mr. Raspanti has litigated many of the most complex and important cases in the history of the federal False Claims Act. He has served as lead counsel for whistleblowers in false claims cases that have resulted in over $1.8 billion in recoveries for federal and state taxpayers. He focuses his practice on federal and state qui tam litigation, white collar criminal defense, criminal and civil health care fraud defense, internal corporate investigations, compliance, professional licensing litigation, and complex civil litigation.
Mr. Raspanti received his B.A. from Villanova University and his J.D. from Temple University School of Law. He frequently speaks, writes, lectures, and comments on white collar and health care fraud issues throughout the country.
