JGL principals Jay Holland and Veronica Nannis co-sponsored the 17th Annual Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund Conference and Awards Dinner from Nov. 1 to Nov. 3. Although longtime attendees, this marks the second year that the two have been co-sponsors of the invite-only conference, held at The Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington D.C. This is the preeminent conference for whistleblower attorneys and sees attendees from across the nation.
The conference always focuses on the False Claims Act and whistleblowers. In addition to three days of educational workshops, the conference is a chance for attendees to network with and learn from one another. Attendees included members of the Department of Justice and state Attorneys General offices, as well as prominent policy makers, federal agency attorneys, key subject matter experts, and members of the relators’ bar. With a strong and deep whistleblower practice, JGL had six members of the firm attend the conference.
Both Holland and Nannis have extensive experience with the False Claims Act and whistleblower law. Holland is chair of the firm’s Labor, Employment and Qui Tam Whistleblower practice, and Nannis has been representing employees with personal knowledge of health care fraud in particular for over 10 years. Holland and Nannis have both proven to be loyal allies and for their clients, as well as skillful courtroom advocates.
