How might you handle bad facts, difficult investigation witnesses, and the dreaded "smoking gun" document? This panel explores the considerations and best practices in proceeding, including the possibility of continued voluntary cooperation, what to do when the government’s case is ill-founded, understanding the government’s focus, isolating critical documents and key witnesses, dealing with an Achilles heel, and considerations for early settlement.   Session 4: Government Investigations, Part IV: The Litigation Process – Fight or flee? This panel focuses on the key issues and ethical considerations presented as the government’s investigation moves into its most active phase.

It looks at strategic settlement considerations, the cost of defense vs. the cost of settlement, discussing settlement with the government, strategies in crafting an agreement, collateral consequences of settlement, seeking a high-level review of a charging decision, SOX clawbacks, and PR, IR and SEC disclosures.   more »

Recent Enforcement Trends in Healthcare (Apr 2018)

The federal government and various states continue to investigate and litigate healthcare fraud cases across all sectors of the industry.
