Firm wins $1.6 million settlement for whistleblower

Gair Eberhard Nelson Dedinas Ltd. represented a senior-level in-house counsel in his whistleblower and retaliation claims against his former employer, a large healthcare network.  During pre-merger due diligence, our client uncovered compelling evidence of billing practices and physician compensation arrangements that violated federal health care laws, including the Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute, False Claims Act and HIPAA. After raising concerns about the matters and urging the company to take remedial measures, the healthcare network terminated our client’s employment. 

Chris Gair and Kristi Nelson represented the client.  We obtained a $1.6 million pre-suit settlement of his whistleblower and retaliation claims.
