Healthcare Government Enforcement

Healthcare businesses today face an environment in which regulatory issues can quickly turn into government investigations or enforcement actions. 

Waller's attorneys help clients navigate this dynamic environment in order to avoid having otherwise simple regulatory issues morph into something more. We understand what to expect and how to respond to a government investigation because many of our attorneys actually investigated allegations of fraud and abuse for the government. When faced with a government investigation or enforcement action, our attorneys help clients respond appropriately with strategies aimed at minimizing - or completely avoiding - penalties, negative publicity and disruptions to core business operations.

Waller has successfully represented healthcare organizations, individual providers, boards of directors and executives in federal and state criminal, civil and regulatory enforcement matters across the country. As part of our holistic approach to client service, our attorneys draw from the firm's extensive healthcare regulatory and operations knowledge in order to quickly understand and proactively respond to any government investigation. We know that government action can significantly disrupt a client's business operations. Our attorneys work diligently to quickly and efficiently reach a resolution that allows our clients to get on with their business.

  • Include former Assistant United States Attorneys and Department of Justice attorneys who have investigated and prosecuted a multitude of large-scale complex cases while with the government
