The attorneys in our Internal Investigations Practice Group have decades of experience representing entities and individuals in the healthcare industry that are the focus of state and federal prosecutors and enforcement agencies. Increasingly, investigations are parallel, multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional endeavors involving serious allegations of fraud, conspiracy, and financial crimes. Our collective experience in criminal, civil, and administrative matters positions the firm to efficiently represent entities and individuals facing these parallel government investigations and proceedings.
Our members, many of whom previously worked as prosecutors or regulators, have years of experience in counseling and defending clients in the context of government agent interviews, grand jury matters, administrative subpoenas and civil investigative demands, search warrants, regulatory hearings, parallel civil and criminal proceedings, and when necessary, in the courtroom.
In addition, the group has extensive experience in counseling clients on corporate governance, self-disclosure options and repayments, and in conducting internal investigations. Our experience includes conducting independent investigations on behalf of audit committees, special litigation committees and independent directors, as well as conducting confidential internal investigations on behalf of corporate clients or management. We also represent individual directors and officers if they are subjects of internal investigations.
