NEW YORK (Aug. 18, 2014) – The national law firm of Epstein Becker Green is pleased to announce that Hanna Fox has joined as a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the New York office.

Ms. Fox was previously with Arnold & Porter LLP in New York. She focuses primarily on representing health care providers, including hospitals, physician groups, and individual physicians. Her practice includes representation of clients in internal investigations, governmental and regulatory investigations, and litigation. Ms. Fox has represented corporations and individuals in matters involving a wide range of subject areas, including the False Claims Act, Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse, "Stark" self-referral laws, audits by governmental and private insurers, physician licensure, and research misconduct. She also advises health care providers on corporate governance and the development and implementation of compliance programs.

"Hanna has a great deal of experience advising and guiding health care entities through complex government audits and investigations. She will be a perfect fit to our current roster of health care attorneys who have successfully managed and resolved government inquiries and negotiated innovative and favorable settlements for some of the most high-profile government investigations of the past three decades," said George Breen, Chair of the firm's National Health Care and Life Sciences Practice Steering Committee.

"We are always looking for talented individuals like Hanna to join our New York office. Her experience as a health care litigator is timely as we are seeing an uptick in enforcement by various government agencies, thus creating a demand from clients for our services," said Peter Altieri, Managing Shareholder of the firm's New York office and a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Labor and Employment practices. 

Ms. Fox said, "By joining Epstein Becker Green, I look forward to expanding the services I offer my clients, given the depth of the firm's service offerings to the health care industry, including its extensive experience relating to payors, value-based purchasing and accountable care, and privacy and security issues, as well as its regulatory bench strength. Epstein Becker Green's attorneys have strong relationships with both state and federal government agencies and are seen as the ‘go-to' counsel for health care companies that may potentially face or are currently being investigated by the government. Epstein Becker Green's platform provides me an opportunity to continue to grow my practice."
