Experienced Attorneys, Recognized in Their Fields

One measure of the depth of our experience is the recognition our team receives. Chambers USA ranks several members of the life sciences team as leaders in their fields. Our attorneys also have significant government experience related to compliance, enforcement, and reimbursement issues, representing federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
