Premier White Collar Litigation Boutique

Health Care & Qui Tam Litigation

In this era of heightened government enforcement, perhaps no industry is as closely regulated and scrutinized as healthcare.  Between changing Medicare rules and regulations, whistleblowers lawsuits under the False Claims Act and industry-wide investigations led by federal prosecutors, no company in the healthcare or pharmaceuticals industry is safe from risk.  Your involvement in a wide range of investigations, enforcement actions and audits potentially can lead to catastrophic criminal, civil and administrative penalties and incarceration for individual executives and employees.

Utilizing our experience as former federal prosecutors with expertise in healthcare fraud, pharmaceuticals fraud and qui tam investigations, we regularly defend clients in criminal and civil matters in federal and state jurisdictions throughout the country.  We represent corporations of all sizes as well as individual executives and employees. We also are experienced in serving as “pool counsel” for the employees of corporations.  Frequently, we are asked to conduct internal investigations on behalf of corporations, boards of directors or audit committees regarding healthcare and pharmaceutical regulatory compliance.

Our cases often involve allegations related to:

  • Offering or receiving kickbacks and other financial inducements;
  • Creating or maintaining improper financial relationships in violation of the Stark Act
  • Billing improprieties either for services not rendered, not medically indicated or necessary, upcoding and double billing;
  • Filing of false claims with government health programs;
  • Provision of inadequate or substandard medical care;
  • Provision of experimental or cutting-edge medical treatments not in line with relevant standards of medical care;
  • Improper sales and marketing of drugs, medical devices and durable medical equipment; and
  • Improper branding, labeling and dispensation of pharmaceuticals, devices and other products regulated by the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
