False Claims Act Risk and the Paycheck Protection Program: Common Sense Approaches to Minimize Risk, Surety Bond Quarterly

In an article for Surety Bond Quarterly, Jenner & Block Partner David B. Robbins provides a brief overview of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and some of its shifting guidance; outlines the government oversight and enforcement mechanisms that will be reviewing PPP expenditures and punishing associated misconduct; and presents general risk mitigation techniques as well as targeted strategies for sureties and producers.  “In sum, the PPP is a source of much needed liquidity in a frighteningly uncertain time. The risk of government audit and investigation is real, but it need not be paralyzing,” David wrote.
