Eleanor Chung* is a litigator, strategic advisor, and creative problem-solver for health care and life sciences companies.

Hospital systems, hospital staffing companies, and providers turn to Eleanor to handle their investigations, complex litigation matters, and appeals in the areas of health care fraud and abuse, long-term care, and federal and state False Claims Act matters. She is also particularly adept at advising clients on issues regarding artificial intelligence (AI), information blocking, and the liability of health care professionals. Eleanor has successfully negotiated the settlement of a health care fraud case without a corporate integrity agreement, advised a client in an investigation dealing with predictive coding, and assisted clients with numerous repayment issues.

Eleanor is the author of Pleading Causes of Action in Maryland, 7th ed., the best-selling, standard reference on Maryland Civil Procedure that is frequently quoted by Maryland jurists. She has published in peer-reviewed journals on a wide range of health care topics, from medical licensure and global health, to CMS Innovation Awards for behavioral health care, to ownership of rare genetic samples. In law school, she served as a research assistant for Frank Pasquale’s New Laws of Robotics: Defending Human Expertise in the Age of AI.

Before joining Epstein Becker Green, Eleanor worked as a medical malpractice and nursing home abuse and neglect litigator, handling every part of the litigation process, from depositions to dispositive motions to appellate argument, and achieving major lower and appellate court victories.

While working toward her law degree, Eleanor completed a legal internship at the National Institutes of Health’s National Human Genome Research Institute, where she studied the use of AI to identify disease-causing genes and analyzed federal and state law to determine ownership interests in genomic data and samples. She also clerked at the U.S. Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division, where she supported high-profile environmental litigation.

Prior to law school, Eleanor spent five years as a medical administrator, where she led a private medical practice’s transition to electronic medical records and oversaw coding and billing. Before that, she journeyed to South Korea on a Fulbright Scholarship. She stayed an additional two years to teach English at a college near the Demilitarized Zone and to study the Korean language.
