Biography

Hope is Chair of the Health Care Enforcement Defense Practice and serves on the Policy Committee and Pro Bono Committee. She represents health care providers, product manufacturers, payors, and investors.

Hope specializes in statutory and regulatory issues affecting the provision of health care services. Her practice includes counseling, structuring, and litigating fraud and abuse issues as well as reimbursement matters.

She defends and resolves large, multifaceted federal and state investigations arising under criminal and civil statutes barring, among other things, the submission of false claims and the provision of remuneration to induce referrals. In connection with such cases, Hope negotiates and structures global settlements with the US Department of Justice and its US Attorneys' Offices and state Attorneys' General Offices as well as corporate integrity agreements with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General.

Many of the cases that she has handled have arisen as a result of qui tam cases filed by whistleblowers, under federal and state False Claims Acts. Hope also develops and implements compliance programs and advises clients in connection with voluntary disclosures to the government. Hope defends administrative actions initiated by federal and state agencies, including recoupment actions and proceedings involving licensure and certification. She has a comprehensive understanding of the Medicare and Medicaid programs and the rules governing reimbursement. In her work before the US Congress on behalf of clients, Hope has supported enactment of statutes including the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments and the Stark self-referral bans.

Hope frequently speaks on topics of interest to health care providers, payors, and product manufacturers. She also has written extensively on issues confronting health care providers.
