The firm has provided representation to many persons and entities who do business with the state or federal government in cases where they are accused of overbillings, improper manufacture of parts or improper provision of services. We have represented medical providers, prime contractors with the United States and subcontractors for prime contractors. Once the person or entity is informed of an inquiry, we perform internal investigations to determine if any improper conduct has occurred and, if so, the best way to handle the matter for the client. We have also defended clients in “qui tam” actions brought by individuals who seek to assert the rights of a government entity. We have particular experience in litigating under both the Kansas and federal false claims acts.
