Description
The federal government has committed nearly $3 trillion to COVID-19 financial relief programs, dwarfing all other economic stimulus packages that followed national crises. And this number continues to grow. However, borrowers should beware. As with prior disaster relief stimulus packages, companies should expect the COVID-19 financial relief programs to be followed by strict government oversight, whistleblower reports of alleged abuse, and targeted audits, investigations, and enforcement actions. In this CLE webinar, you will hear from Alixandra Smith, Chief of the Business and Securities Fraud Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, George Stamboulidis, a former federal prosecutor and Managing Partner at BakerHostetler, and Frances McLeod, Founding Partner of Forensic Risk Alliance, on the regulatory risks borrowers face under the COVID-19 financial relief programs and what they could do now to prevent costly government fraud investigations and litigation down the road. Program topics will include:

  • History of increased government fraud investigations and prosecutions against stimulus recipients in the wake of national emergencies
  • Key borrowing provisions of the COVID-19 financial relief programs
  • Government oversight mechanisms established under the CARES Act
  • The federal government’s current focus on combating COVID-19 related crime
  • Proactive compliance measures to mitigate regulatory risk
