Skilled Health Care Compliance Attorneys Serving Clients Across the United States
Just like you would not drive a car without your children wearing a seat belt, you should not operate a health care business without appropriate safety mechanisms. The Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP offers reliable protection and our clients benefit from our reputation and health care law competence. Lawyers that previously investigated and prosecuted on behalf of the OIG and the Department of Justice (like Lynette Byrd) are now advising our clients by reviewing contracts, creating safe business models, and building company structures that pass regulatory scrutiny.
Knowing first-hand what regulators are looking for in health care transactions is a rare and extremely valuable commodity. Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP offers these insights to our group of clients and provides answers such as: Is my business model compliant? What can I do to not worry about criminal investigations? Is it safe to enter this health care transaction? Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP serves as outside counsel to a variety of health care clients ranging from small practices to national conglomerates. Our experienced and knowledgeable health care compliance attorneys make sure that business structures and operations comply with state and federal health care laws and we provide – also on an emergency basis in times of crisis— the paperwork, resources, and training to pass government scrutiny.

Many Oberheiden & McMurrey lawyers come from leading positions within the U.S. Attorney’s Office and have a first-hand understanding of how state and federal regulators analyze healthcare laws and corporate compliance. While many traditional healthcare lawyers have never negotiated with FBI or OIG agents and never actually defended medical providers or business structures against a healthcare fraud investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office or in court, the advantage of Oberheiden & McMurrey is that we know from our healthcare fraud defense work what mistakes to avoid in the first place.
Why Do Clients Trust Oberheiden & McMurrey?
Over the years, we have painstakingly built a solid reputation as a powerful resource for clients facing federal investigations. Here are a few of the reasons why our clients routinely place so much trust in Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP.
1. Our Experience
Our lawyers enjoy decades of experience responding to federal investigations and navigating the twists and turns of the federal legal system. Our experience with regulatory matters means that we can guide you through the regulatory maze before an investigation is ever commenced. If you are already facing a federal investigation, we can intervene decisively to strengthen your position.
2. Our Government Insights
At Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP, we offer our clients a unique perspective on their cases – the inside knowledge of not one, but several former federal prosecutors who switched sides to join us after distinguished careers with the Department of Justice. We know how the government thinks and how it approaches cases, and we can put that knowledge to work for you.
3. Our Results
The two most important goals in any case are (i) avoiding or minimizing sanctions, and (ii) resolving your case as quickly and economically as possible. We are confident in our ability to achieve these goals, because so many of our clients have walked out of our offices with no civil or criminal liability, or with outcomes far more favorable than they had originally imagined.
4. Our Team Spirit
The federal government is renowned for its effective teamwork, and you can be certain that if they commence an investigation against you, they will assign a wolfpack of investigators, federal agents, and prosecutors to your case. At Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP, we pride ourselves on our ability to work together to maximize our effectiveness. This means that you can fight back with a wolfpack of your own.
5. Our Loyalty
We understand all too well what is at stake for you if things go badly – huge fines, ineligibility for federal benefits, and perhaps even prison time. At Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP, there is nothing that defines us more than our passionate dedication to our clients’ best interests. With us, you can rest assured that your defense team is doing everything humanly possible to secure a favorable outcome for you.
