Healthcare Government Investigations
In recent years, federal and state authorities have devoted ever-increasing resources to investigate and prosecute healthcare providers, life sciences companies, executives, and directors. With increased civil penalties, criminal sentences and fines, it is more important than ever to retain legal counsel with a proven track record in defending companies and individuals against aggressive criminal prosecution and civil enforcement. Successful representation in these cases requires an in-depth understanding of not just the regulatory regimes but also the government's investigative and litigation methods, as well as experience coordinating ongoing parallel administrative, qui tam and criminal matters. Our team has the experience that corporate boards, senior management and practitioners trust to gather the facts, evaluate the options and obtain results.
