Defended Bio-Tech Company Against False Claims Act Allegations

Client: Bio tech company

Represented a San Diego-based bio tech company investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice and more than 30 state attorneys-general for alleged False Claims Act violations. After completing the investigation and suggesting the implementation of new safeguards, presented the findings and affirmative steps to prevent future issues to the government prosecutors and investigators. This significantly mitigated the client’s exposure to penalties and avoided criminal charges altogether.
