What sets our healthcare litigation practice apart from others is our understanding of healthcare law, investigative experience, dedication, and a willingness and ability to try these cases to a jury if necessary. These skills have allowed us to achieve a track record of success.
Our healthcare litigation attorneys can assist with matters involving consumer class actions, regulatory actions against a variety of state and federal agencies, False Claims Act/qui tam actions, ERISA claims, employment cases, personal injury and mass torts claims, criminal/white collar actions, and intellectual property suits (including Hatch-Waxman litigation, traditional patent infringement litigation, and copyright and trademark litigation). These cases can arise in virtually every context of healthcare, such as individual physicians and hospitals involved in direct provision of services to patients, drug manufacturers marketing products to doctors and wholesalers, and diagnostic testing companies that provide services to various end-users. Our healthcare litigation lawyers can also advise on the federal anti-kickback statute, Stark Law governing self-referrals, and the legal and regulatory environment governing the off-label marketing of drugs and devices. Our practice group leader’s trial team secured a landmark victory against the FDA that received widespread media attention. Our firm may also be able to use claims and billing data to support our clients’ defenses and undermine the opposing parties’ theories of liability. Our healthcare litigation attorneys can represent leaders and individuals, small and emerging companies and organizations, as well as pharmaceutical companies.
Matter involving healthcare litigation can have a significant overlap of criminal and civil enforcement efforts, and require strategic planning to navigate those issues effectively.
