Our Firm Wrote the Book on Healthcare Fraud


Other lawyers turn to our 1,500 page textbook, Healthcare Fraud Enforcement & Compliance, to learn about the False Claims Act. Written and updated bi-annually by our attorneys, FBW’s two-volume treatise has graced the library shelves of law schools and law firms nationwide for more than 25 years. 


But our knowledge isn’t just academic: FBW has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars and set records for qui tam whistleblower recoveries, including national records for the largest home health case, winning $150 million against Amedisys, and the nation’s largest hospice case, winning $75 million against Vitas.
