Health care is the largest and fastest-growing industry in the United States. The size and complexity of the health care industry increasingly lead to high-stakes litigation among providers, manufacturers, insurers, and, overwhelmingly, federal and state law enforcement agencies and qui tam relators.

What once were disputes that were easily managed are now risks that routinely are measured in the tens and hundreds of millions of dollars. And for hospital systems, pharmaceutical manufacturers, benefits managers, and nursing facilities, the stakes in fraud cases sometimes exceed billions of dollars. The litigation juggernaut also has spawned a compliance and investigative sub-industry that itself fosters great expense and risk.

A participant in the business of health care needs a highly skilled and experienced law firm to meet the challenges of health care litigation and compliance in both civil and criminal cases—and Epstein Becker Green is ideally suited to meet that need. Counting among our ranks former federal and state prosecutors, along with lawyers with decades of health care litigation experience, and having one of the largest fully integrated health practices in the country and offices in nearly every region, Epstein Becker Green offers dispute avoidance and litigation services that are significant in scope and competence.
