American Bar Association's Consumer Financial Services Committee Winter Meeting

January 11, 2014 - January 14, 2014
Park City, Utah


William Harrington, a partner in Goodwin Procter's Securities Litigation and White Collar Defense group, was a speaker for the panel "The Rise of Claims Under the False Claims Act and FIRREA against Mortgage Lenders and Servicers - A Look at the Law and the Litigation." Enforcement authorities have turned to the False Claims Act and FIRREA, a remnant of the last banking crisis, as a means to seek recovery from the originators of loans leading up to the current crisis. This panel has been on the front lines of the development of this area of law. Topics included insights regarding existing and potential future enforcement actions.
