We have the background to effectively defend our clients in inquiries, audits and investigations by state government agencies, such as the Attorney General, the Office of Long Term Care, the Department of Human Services, the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General and state professional regulatory boards and federal agencies such as Medicaid, Medicare, the Office of the Inspector General, the Food & Drug Administration, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the FBI and Health and Human Services.
We also assist our clients in identifying and mitigating regulatory and compliance risks before an investigation begins, particularly in the healthcare industry. We have attorneys who are certified in HIPAA-related compliance matters and can provide training and review procedures. We also have attorneys who can provide a high-level risk assessment on pharmacy diversion control measures and provide training and model policies to ensure compliance with DEA and Board of Pharmacy regulations.
Finally, our government relations attorneys are skilled in representing entities and individuals in regulatory and licensure matters before government agencies and the legislative branch. We regularly assist our clients with obtaining licensure to practice or approval to operate as well as advocating within the executive branch on a pending regulatory issue or seeking legislative changes in state law.
