Owen Dunn represents companies in federal and state investigations involving alleged False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, and regulatory violations. His clients hail from a wide range of industries, including healthcare, pharmaceutical, defense, procurement, and aeronautics.

Mr. Dunn views his role as a counselor for his clients and, often, for the government. Time and again, he has helped his clients reach favorable resolutions by identifying disconnects between the investigators’ theories of wrongdoing and the facts of his clients’ conduct. He has managed internal investigations, designed corrective action plans, and prepared cases for trial. He has also negotiated overwhelmingly favorable settlements with federal and state stakeholders.

Mr. Dunn also maintains an active pro bono practice in which he represents clients in the areas of voting rights, election law, and wrongful termination.

Before joining the firm, Mr. Dunn served as a law clerk to the Honorable Eric L. Clay of the US Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit. He received his JD, magna cum laude, from the Georgetown University Law Center, and he was awarded the Order of the Coif upon graduation.
