About Me

I am a partner in the Life Sciences Health Industry Group of Reed Smith, and was recently named one of the nation's "Outstanding Young Healthcare Lawyers" by Nightingale's Healthcare News.  I focus my practice on health care fraud and abuse and compliance, and provide advice to a wide range of health care clients, including pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, DME suppliers, providers (e.g., hospitals, health systems, pharmacies and SNFs), health care industry trade associations, group purchasing organizations and payors.

In addition, I assist clients during fraud investigations and audits, and analyze complex health care arrangements under the Anti-Kickback, Stark, Beneficiary Inducement and False Claims laws.  I have drafted numerous corporate compliance programs, counseled clients regarding the structure of joint ventures and negotiated government settlements and corporate integrity agreements ("CIAs").  I also have significant experience providing advice to pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, particularly related to sales and marketing practices and complex discounting arrangements, including bundling.
