I will mention some of the ongoing projects in our firm’s Consumer Fraud and Commercial Litigation Section. Lawyers in the Section are winding down the AWP litigation that has involved several states. That litigation has been a most successful endeavor, benefiting the citizens of the eight states our firm represented. Dee Miles heads up this Section for the firm. The following are some of the other ongoing projects in the section.
State and Municipalities Litigation – Our firm has represented numerous states throughout the country. These cases have been handled through the attorneys general and have involved various civil actions. Many times, individuals are barred from bringing a consumer fraud type claim but the state government is not. We recently concluded litigation in six of eight states for a recovery of more than $1 billion, with still two states remaining. For more information, contact Dee Miles, Roman Shaul or Alison Hawthorne at 800-898-2034 or by email at Dee.Miles@beasleyallen.com, Roman.Shaul@beasleyallen.com or Alison.Hawthorne@beasleyallen.com.
False Claims Act / Whistleblower – We are handling and investigating whistleblower claims of government fraud ranging from Medicare/Medicaid to military contracts, and any other type of fraud involving a government contract. Under the False Claims Act (FCA) the whistleblower is entitled to a percentage of the recovery. Studies show that as much as 10 percent of Medicare/Medicaid charges are fraudulent. Common schemes involve double-billing for the same service, inaccurately coding services, and billing for services not performed. Additionally, the Commission on Wartime Contracting has warned that the lack of oversight of government contractors has led to massive fraud and waste. Contact Lance Gould, Larry Golston or Andrew Brashier at 800-898-2034 or by email at Lance.Gould@beasleyallen.com, Larry.Golston@beasleyallen.com, or Andrew.Brashier@beasleyallen.com.
Class Action Litigation – Lawyers in the Section are handling a number of class action cases. Many of their cases are of the MDL variety. Contact Dee Miles, Archie Grubb or Andrew Brashier at 800-898-2034 or by email at Dee.Miles@beasleyallen.com, Archie.Grubb@beasleyallen.com or Andrew.Brashier@beasleyallen.com.
Antitrust – Our firm is handling claims related to the violation of federal and state antitrust laws. Lawyers in this section are currently involved in claims alleging a wide array of anticompetitive conduct, including illegal tying, exclusive dealing, monopolization, and price fixing. Contact Archie Grubb, Roman Shaul or Alison Hawthorne at 800-898-2034 or by email at Archie.Grubb@beasleyallen.com, Roman.Shaul@beasleyallen.com or Alison.Hawthorne@beasleyallen.com.
Health Care Fraud – Our lawyers are looking into cases of fraud within the health care industry. These may include cases dealing with pricing, off-label prescriptions, or other health care abuse. Contact Roman Shaul, Clay Barnett or Rebecca Gilliland at 800-898-2034 or by email at Roman.Shaul@beasleyallen.com, Clay.Barnett@beasleyallen.com, or Rebecca.Gilliland@beasleyallen.com.
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) – Lawyers in the Section are working on several cases involving Fair Labor Standards Act violations. The FLSA cases are brought on behalf of clients whose job title is misclassified by their employers so that employees are not compensated for overtime worked. Cases may also involve unequal pay, where women are paid less for doing the same job as men. Contact Lance Gould or Larry Golston at 800-898-2034 or by email at Lance.Gould@beasleyallen.com or Larry.Golston@beasleyallen.com.
Dee Miles heads up this Section. Currently there are 11 lawyers and three Legal Assistants working with Dee in the Section. The types of cases handled by the lawyers are constantly changing, which is quite a challenge, and requires them to be able to take on new projects. Thus far, they have handled things extremely well.
