Government Investigations

Entities operating in the health care space increasingly are targeted by the DOJ, HHS OIG, individual U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and state attorneys general, all seeking to enforce a wide range of fraud and abuse laws, such as the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Act, Medicare and Medicaid regulations, the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the Prescription Drug Marketing Act, the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), health care fraud and other criminal statutes.

We represent clients facing investigation and prosecution by state and federal authorities, including the U.S. Attorneys’ offices, state attorneys general and Congressional oversight committees.
