Alston & Bird’s health care litigation team consists of experienced litigators who understand the complex regulations governing the health care industry. Our litigation team works closely with our regulatory compliance, legislative and public policy, and FDA colleagues. Our litigators have represented companies in the health care industry in jurisdictions throughout the United States and in every aspect of litigation and dispute resolution, from administrative proceedings to jury trials and bench proceedings and appellate arguments.
We regularly defend health care companies and executives in criminal and civil investigations before U.S. attorneys’ offices across the country, as well as at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. In the course of those investigations, we interact with various federal and state enforcement agencies that often work health care fraud investigations together, such as the FBI, HHS-OIG, state Medicaid Fraud Control Units and the FDA.
We are also very experienced in internal and independent investigations, having conducted hundreds of internal investigations on behalf of our health care clients.
