  • Rule Of Law And Role In Achieving The Chinese Dream At Golden Networking's China Leaders Forum 2013

    "The Rule of Law and its Role in Achieving the Chinese Dream" is another one of the topics to be discussed at Golden Networking's China Leaders Forum 2013, "Will the Chinese Dream Become Long-term Investors' Dream or Nightmare?", to be held on October 1st, New York City. China Leaders Forum 2013 (http://chinaleadersforum.com), in its fifth edition, is gearing up to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

    China has made an extraordinary journey along the road back to greatness. Hundreds of millions have been lifted out of poverty, hundreds of millions more have joined the new middle class. It is on the verge of reclaiming what it sees as its rightful position in the world. China's global influence is expanding and within a decade its economy is expected to overtake America's. The new head of the country, Xi Jinping, has evoked that rise promoting the "Chinese dream" evoking its American equivalent. Mr Xi's priority will be to keep the economy growing and that means opening up China even more. What will be the role of the Chinese new generation? Will nationalism interfere with the rhetoric of the resurgent nation? Will corruption and official excess be curbed? Will the constitution become more powerful than the party?

    Golden Networking's China Leaders Forum 2013, "Will the Chinese Dream Become Long-term Investors' Dream or Nightmare?", will examine the economic and finance challenges facing China nowadays and the long-term opportunities for global investors that will be created in the world's upcoming largest economy:

    Mr. Guttman's practice involves complex litigation and class actions. He has represented clients in claims brought under the Federal False Claims Act, securities laws, the Price Anderson Act, Department of Energy (DOE) statutes and regulations, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and various employment discrimination, labor and environmental statutes. He has also tried and/or litigated claims involving fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, antitrust, business interference and other common law torts.

    The International Business Times has called Mr. Guttman "one of the world's most prominent whistleblower attorneys." He has served as counsel in some of the largest recoveries under the False Claims Act. In 2013, Mr. Guttman was lead counsel in an intervened case by the United States Department of Justice against Pfizer, Inc. involving the kidney-transplant drug Rapamune. On July 30, 2013, The U.S. Department of Justice announced that Pfizer had agreed to pay $491 million to settle criminal and civil charges stemming from the illegal marketing of Rapamune by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, which was acquired by Pfizer in 2009. Mr. Guttman represented two whistleblowers---sales representative Marlene Sandler and pharmacist Scott Paris---who brought the initial action in the case, United States ex rel. Sandler et al. v. Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Also in 2013, Mr. Guttman was lead counsel in U.S. ex rel. Kurnik v. Amgen, Inc. et al., resulting in the recovery of $24.9 million from Amgen. That case exposed kickbacks designed to increase sales of the drug Aranesp.

    In 2012, he served as lead counsel for the lead whistleblower, Meredith McCoyd, in U.S. ex rel. McCoyd v. Abbott Labs, which resulted in a $1.6 billion recovery for the government. In 2012, he also represented one of the four main whistleblowers in a case against GlaxoSmithKline that returned over $3 billion to the government. Also in 2012, Mr. Guttman represented whistleblower Lynn Szymoniak whose qui tam case, involving fraudulent mortgage assignments, was resolved as part of the government's $25 billion settlement with some of the world's largest banks. He represented one of the six main whistleblowers in litigation resulting in the government's September 2009, $2.3 billion settlement with Pfizer Pharmaceutical and he served as counsel in U.S. ex rel. Johnson v. Shell Oil Co., 33 F. Supp. 2d 528 (E.D. Tex. 1999), where over $300 million was recovered from the oil industry. On behalf of a European whistleblower, Mr. Guttman was counsel in litigation that resulted in a $13 million settlement.
