Provider organizations may not learn they face a government investigation or a lawsuit until confronted with the need to respond. Krieg DeVault has represented numerous hospitals and health systems in high-pressure situations when confronted with discovery requests, preliminary injunctions, search warrants, or subpoenas. Krieg DeVault assists hospitals with the development of officer and director indemnification, and public relations and corporate disclosure strategies if an investigation occurs. If officers or directors face white-collar criminal charges, we develop pre-charge and pre-indictment strategies and provide vigorous defense in court through attorneys who have had experience as Assistant US Attorneys with the Department of Justice (DOJ). And for many other litigation-related crises that providers can face – from physician non-compete controversies to emergency guardianships – we move quickly and effectively to secure or resist TROs and injunctions as client needs require.
