White Collar Defense
Kirk Ogrosky defends corporations and individuals in government investigations, qui tam litigation, and trials. An experienced litigator and trial lawyer, he has first-chaired numerous federal cases with juries reaching verdicts in his favor on all counts over the last 10 years.
Kirk joined the firm in 2010 after a distinguished career in government. He served as deputy chief of the Fraud Section in the Criminal Division of the US Department of Justice from 2006 to 2010. Because of his work in that role, Kirk is widely recognized as the key architect behind modern criminal healthcare enforcement programs. In 2006, he created the Medicare Fraud Strike Force in partnership with HHS-OIG and FBI. He managed teams of prosecutors handling national healthcare, FCPA, and securities fraud cases. Prior to DOJ, he was an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of Florida and an Assistant Attorney General in Kentucky.
Ranked as a leading lawyer by Chambers USA, clients praised Kirk’s “exceptional work” and “great judgment.” In 2014 and 2015, Kirk was designated as one of Washington's Top-100 lawyers by Super Lawyers. He has been described by his peers as "one of the premier healthcare experts in the United States.” Other recognition includes Washingtonian’s Best Lawyers for healthcare, LMG’s Life Sciences Star, Super Lawyers for white collar defense, and the highest rating by Martindale (AV).
Kirk speaks as a faculty member, panelist and keynote on healthcare fraud, foreign bribery, criminal law enforcement, and trial issues. He serves as an adjunct professor of law at Georgetown University where he teaches healthcare fraud.
