We have the experience to help clients—particularly those in the healthcare industry—navigate the ever-expanding breadth of False Claims Act (“FCA”) and health care litigation.  We have achieved success for our clients at every phase—conducting thorough investigations, persuading government agencies not to intervene in whistleblower suits, obtaining dismissals through motion practice, negotiating favorable settlements with government agencies and relators, and taking cases through litigation and trial. 

Greene Espel’s FCA and health care litigation team features the right experience to handle any matter. Our team includes the former head of the Civil Fraud Unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Minnesota, a former criminal federal prosecutor and in-house counsel for a Fortune 10 healthcare company with significant FCA experience, and a former FBI agent with extensive FCA defense experience at an Amlaw 10 firm. 

Our team has collectively investigated over one hundred FCA cases, obtained multiple no-action resolutions from the DOJ in FCA defense matters, tried dozens of cases to federal and state juries, and handled numerous parallel criminal-civil proceedings. Greene Espel attorneys have persuaded relators’ counsel to drop FCA claims before they were filed, successfully encouraged the government not to intervene in qui tam FCA suits, obtained dismissals of FCA claims before discovery, seen FCA cases through discovery and trial, and obtained favorable settlements in FCA cases. And we have helped healthcare companies navigate state FCA and Attorney General Medicaid enforcement matters. 

Greene Espel’s unique structure allows us to efficiently handle all manner of health care litigation, including FCA matters. We offer big-firm experience and talent with small firm value. We combine a wealth of knowledge of the highly regulated and rapidly changing health care industry with considerable experience in complex litigation and investigations. Companies need attorneys with the right mix of experience, strategic expertise, and legal creativity to help protect their interests. Greene Espel is here to help.
