Nationwide Healthcare Compliance and Defense Representation
Oberheiden P.C. is a healthcare compliance and defense law firm with a nationwide practice. Founded by Nick Oberheiden, PhD in 2010, our firm has grown to include a network of dozens of lawyers and expert consultants located in major cities across the country.
Several of our lawyers previously served as healthcare fraud prosecutors at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and many of our expert consultants served as high-ranking Special Agents with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG), U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and other agencies before entering the private sector. As a result of this experience, we have a deep understanding of both what the federal government expects from healthcare providers and how it pursues civil and criminal investigations.
Having represented clients in 48 states and in all sectors of the industry, we also understand what our healthcare clients expect from their legal representation. We understand that healthcare providers want straightforward advice, and that they want to have the policies and procedures they need to focus on treating their patients rather than managing compliance. We also understand that healthcare providers want to avoid unnecessary scrutiny from the HHS OIG, DEA, and other federal agencies—and that they want all of this as cost-effectively as possible.
This understanding informs our approach to healthcare compliance and defense. Relying on our experience, we work closely with our clients to understand their specific concerns, risks, and needs. We then develop custom-tailored legal solutions designed to efficiently meet their needs. We also continue to make ourselves available to our clients on an ongoing basis so that our clients can get the advice they need when they need it.
Healthcare Compliance and Defense
All of our healthcare lawyers and consultants have senior-level experience, which means that our clients never work with junior associates or paralegals. This maximizes the efficiency of our representation and the efficacy of our clients’ spend. We take this same approach to every matter we handle in the areas of both healthcare compliance and healthcare defense.
