Krieg DeVault lawyers structure internal investigations that meet the government’s enforcement tactics head-on. If appropriate, the investigation is conducted with the goal to preserve the attorney-client privilege. If a hospital client faces government allegations of misconduct, we conduct witness interviews and review documentation, evaluate the results, and help form an appropriate response – whether the conduct under investigation is based upon an internally-identified issue, to formal or informal government inquiries, or to search warrants and subpoenas. We offer vigorous representation in all phases of administrative, civil and criminal litigation involving allegations of False Claims Act violations, including qui tam whistle-blower cases, as well as Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Act cases. Often we can negotiate settlement agreements and Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIAs) with the Department of Justice and the Office of Inspector General, and help implement the terms of such agreements.
