Danielle Hustus is a member of the Government Investigations & White Collar Defense practice group, where she represents corporations, executives and professionals in government investigations and enforcement actions as well as in related complex litigation.
I represent and advise clients in criminal and civil enforcement actions, internal investigations and compliance matters. My practice focuses on matters involving anti-kickback laws, the False Claims Act, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FDA regulations and fraud statutes.
The government will continue to prioritize the combatting of fraud on the taxpayer, notably through enforcement of the False Claims Act. With the Department of Justice’s civil health care fraud settlements and judgments exceeding $2 billion for the ninth consecutive year, we can expect examination of and enforcement against fraud in the health care industry to remain a focus of government resources in the coming years. The Department’s January 2018 Granston Memo—which outlines the factors that the government will consider when deciding to dismiss a qui tam case—does, however, indicate that the government will seek to preserve those limited resources by more consistently exercising its gatekeeping authority over meritless claims.
