Drawing on her extensive experience defending clients against health care fraud enforcement actions, Laura Laemmle-Weidenfeld also provides practical compliance advice on federal and state health care fraud and abuse issues. She has defended against numerous investigations and litigation brought by the Department of Justice (DOJ), various U.S. Attorneys offices, the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG), state attorneys general, and other state and federal agencies. Laura also helps clients navigate challenging compliance issues, including analyzing arrangements under the Stark Laws and Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS), conducting internal investigations, and preparing self-disclosures.

Laura has represented a broad spectrum of health care providers, including hospitals and health systems, home health care agencies, telehealth providers, physician practices, clinical laboratories, post-acute care providers, and pharmacies, as well as pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and electronic health record software developers.

Laura previously was a trial attorney in the Frauds Section of DOJ’s Civil Division, where she conducted health care fraud investigations and litigation matters brought under the False Claims Act (FCA) and its whistleblower ( qui tam) provisions. While at DOJ, she focused largely on FCA matters alleging violations of AKS, Stark Laws, and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
