Our team routinely wins for clients in their most high-stakes matters. Here are some of our recent results:

  • We persuaded the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to decline to bring charges after a two-year False Claims Act investigation of a medical device manufacturer. Because there was no whistleblower, the company was able to put the entire matter behind it.
  • We convinced the DOJ to decline to intervene in a False Claims Act case brought by a former employee alleging fraudulent billing for medical services that were part of clinical research. When the relator elected to proceed with the case in US district court, our team persuaded the court to dismiss the case.
  • We persuaded the government to decline to intervene in an False Claims Act action involving allegations against a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures and markets generic and branded prescription and over-the-counter products.
