Fraud & Abuse/Regulatory Compliance
Our healthcare clients rely on the counsel of Rivkin Radler in regulatory and government enforcement matters involving the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the False Claims Act, corporate practice of medicine and fee-splitting prohibitions, and other fraud and abuse laws. We zealously represent our clients in criminal prosecutions, including investigations by United States Attorney’s Offices, the Office of the Inspector General, and various states’ Attorneys General. In addition, Rivkin Radler counsels clients in connection with corporate integrity agreements and offers independent review services to help ensure ongoing compliance and decreased scrutiny from regulators. We also regularly represent clients at licensing proceedings before professional licensing boards.
Our healthcare lawyers work closely with the members of our Compliance, Investigations & White Collar Practice Group to represent clients in the natural products, as well as food, dietary supplements and cosmetics industries in matters relating to all aspects of Food and Drug Administration (FDA), regulatory issues, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) advertising proceedings and litigation.
