MNR attorneys have defended executives and corporations in many industries including health care, financial services, military defense contractors, and a range of others – against allegations of fraud. In addition, we also pursue claims on behalf of individuals who have been defrauded. As lawyers who only handle litigation matters, we have particular expertise in the rules and tools to dispose of fraud claims as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Whistleblower actions are increasingly prevalent and our experience includes defending clients and representing whistleblowers in a number of high exposure qui tam/false claims act matters. We also have succeeded in defending various clients in Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) claims arising under the Act’s civil liability provisions. Often civil fraud cases can become entangled with criminal investigations and charges. MNR’s wealth of experience in our white collar crime criminal practice, in such areas as health care fraud, securities fraud and government fraud, provides clients with uniquely focused and comprehensive counsel. We have earned a reputation with the bench and the bar as experienced trial attorneys who are able and willing to try cases when that is needed. This gives our arguments and advocacy particular credibility both in the courtroom and in negotiations to resolve complex state, federal and private litigation.
