Throughout his legal career, Rick - a partner in our Life Sciences Health Industry Group - has represented a wide variety of corporations and their officers in government investigations and white-collar criminal cases. Since the late 1980s, when the federal government first announced that the investigation and prosecution of health care fraud and abuse would be one of its top law enforcement priorities, health care clients began turning to Rick to counsel and defend them in this new environment of increased regulation and scrutiny.
