Healthcare Investigations

For healthcare companies, government investigations and enforcement actions are an unfortunate reality. How you respond to and manage these matters can help to mitigate disruption and keep your business on track, and you need a partner who is intimately familiar with navigating these murky waters.

Goodwin has extensive experience responding to government investigations, defending enforcement actions, and managing audits, administrative, and criminal proceedings. We represent healthcare services, life sciences, and healthcare technology clients in investigations and whistleblower actions relating to alleged violations of the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law as well as alleged billing improprieties and regulatory violations.

We have a long track record of success defending clients in investigations related to fraud and abuse. When an enforcement action proceeds, we advocate for our clients before the government on a daily basis, responding to investigation requests, negotiating the resolution of enforcement actions and advocating for our clients before a wide range of federal and state agencies. We also conduct internal investigations on behalf of boards of directors and committees of independent directors and counsel client concerning self-disclosures and overpayments.

We are well prepared to handle the full range of challenges facing our clients, and frequently represent U.S. and multinational companies and individuals with respect to government and internal corporate investigations, white collar criminal defense, regulatory compliance and related civil litigation, and complex commercial litigation. While we have resolved many of these matters quickly and quietly in advance of litigation and public scrutiny, we are genuine trial lawyers who do not hesitate to try a case when we – and our clients – believe it is the best approach.
