Organization Littler Mendelson
Location Boston, MA

Choate and Littler Mendelson sponsored the Healthcare Whistleblower Summit, where a group of esteemed professionals in employment law, corporate compliance, internal investigations and false claims defense met to discuss potential solutions to defend against false claims cases and whistleblower retaliation claims that public, private and non-profit health care providers, insurers, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers face.  Over the course of two days, attendees participated in discussions and panels that focused on a variety of topics including, how to develop and implement an effective ethics and compliance program, how to deal with the whistleblower in the workplace while defending a threatened or pending lawsuit, and how to promptly and effectively investigate and resolve false claims allegations.

Jack Cinquegrana spoke on "Whistleblower Protection: A Severe Zone of Risk in the Healthcare Industry" and also moderated an interactive presentation that Michael Gass and Melissa Bayer Tearney participated in.  Christine Savage also attended and spoke on "OIG Investigation, Federal Sentencing Guidelines, Flase Claims/Qui Tam and Best Practices for Overall Compliance."
