FH+H Helps Defense Contractor Recover Funds in $70M Forfeiture Action

FH+H Partners Tom Craig and Milt Johns and Associate Marzia Momen helped a defense contractor settle a case in which the client was accused of defrauding and overcharging the federal government, with FH+H's efforts leading to a recovery of the majority of the contested funds for the client.

The client operates several companies that were subcontracted to provide supplies to U.S. military abroad. The government to action to freeze more than $70 million of the client’s funds, alleging that the funds should be forfeited because of allegations that the client improperly received a disproportionate number of task orders and overcharged the U.S. for the associated work.

Through the efforts of FH+H, a settlement was reached that allowed the client to retain the majority of the contested $70M. The deal also favorably resolved a criminal case and False Claims Act allegation against the client.
