Health Care Litigation

The health care industry faces unique challenges arising from such factors as the pace of changing technology, an increasingly complicated regulatory environment, negative public attitudes and increased incentives for whistleblower lawsuits.  Our attorneys help companies and individuals engaged in all aspects of the industry with navigating these challenges.

We have deep experience in a variety of areas affecting the health care industry, including fraud and abuse, intellectual property, corporate transactions and big-stakes commercial litigation.  We are well-versed in the latest industry regulation, including the Affordable Care Act of 2010.  Our attorneys represent the spectrum of health care industry clients, including major health care institutions, hospitals, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, health insurance issuers, practitioners and managed care organizations. 

We have extensive experience resolving fraud and abuse matters, including criminal investigations and qui tam whistleblower claims.  Many of these matters are handled by attorneys who are also members of our White Collar Defense Practice, one of the premier white collar practices in the country.  We also assist clients in drafting or revising compliance programs designed to minimize the risk of fraud and abuse issues at the outset.

We have deep experience in intellectual property litigation for health care clients, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry.  We also routinely represent health care clients in significant commercial litigation, drawing on the firm’s top-tier litigation expertise.

Our attorneys work seamlessly with members of multiple practice groups, including the White Collar, Securities, Appellate, Intellectual Property, Insurance, ERISA, Tax, and Corporate practices.  We leverage the resources of the entire Firm as needed to ensure the highest quality service to our health care clients in the many disparate arenas where they face challenges.
