“We defend on all fronts clients targeted under the False Claims Act.”
We have extensive experience in defending both federal and state False Claims Act cases, brought by the government and whistleblowers. We handle all phases of a False Claims Act case, beginning with an internal investigation and pre-litigation discovery pursuant to an administrative subpoena or Civil Investigative Demand through post-intervention discovery and trial.
