Brianna Portu is a litigator and a member of Nixon Peabody’s Government Investigations and White Collar Defense practice group, representing individuals and corporations across multiple industries.
I represent individuals and companies through all stages of government investigations, internal investigations, and complex civil and criminal litigation. I advise clients in responding to grand jury subpoenas, HIPAA subpoenas, and civil investigative demands involving various enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney’s Offices, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. I have experience assisting clients in the life sciences and healthcare industries in matters involving the False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
The current administration has signaled that it will prioritize enforcement in traditional areas, including healthcare and financial fraud, as well as fraud targeting pandemic relief programs, such as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and other Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) programs. Companies should anticipate an uptick in fraud investigations and should be prepared to respond to increased scrutiny from both federal and state regulators and prosecutors.
