Fraud & Abuse, False Claims and Internal Investigations Team
Seyfarth Shaw’s Fraud & Abuse, False Claims and Internal Investigations Team provides cutting-edge advice to clients in the rapidly expanding and complex area of federal and state fraud and abuse and False Claims Act (FCA) investigations and litigation.
We have successfully defended clients in complicated federal and state fraud and abuse investigations and enforcement proceedings, and qui tam actions brought by the government and private relators in a wide range of industries, including health care, defense contracting, financial services and accounting.
Our multi-disciplinary team draws upon years of experience in health care, government contracts, securities litigation, white collar criminal defense and fraud prevention to provide a wide range of services, from conducting internal investigations and counseling to defending clients in multi-million dollar civil fraud actions and white collar criminal prosecutions.
With the depth and breadth of our experience in key practice areas, our team is uniquely qualified to represent clients in all aspects of federal and state fraud and abuse and FCA counseling, investigations and litigation. Our white collar defense lawyers represent clients in investigations and prosecutions by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General, and federal and state prosecutors. Our health care lawyers provide critical advice to health and welfare plans, hospitals and medical care providers on health care fraud and abuse, Stark Law compliance and other aspects of health care law. Our government contracts lawyers represent defense contractors in governmental and Congressional investigations. Our securities litigators defend clients in investigations and enforcement actions by the SEC, DOJ and other government agencies.
Using SeyfarthLean principles and practices, our team has developed methods for conducting effective internal investigations into allegations of misconduct in a way that minimizes the potential liability for the client, while controlling costs and keeping disruption in the workplace to a minimum.
