Navigant Hires Former DOJ Healthcare Fraud Expert

Navigant (NYSE: NCI) announced today that Wendy Weiss, former Chief of the Civil Fraud Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, has joined the Los Angeles office as a Managing Director in the Healthcare and Life Sciences Disputes, Compliance and Investigations team. Weiss will work with clients in the healthcare industry to address their litigation, investigative and compliance challenges.

As Chief of the Civil Fraud Section for the United States Attorney’s Office (DOJ) for the Central District of California in Los Angeles, Weiss focused on the enforcement of Federal healthcare fraud and False Claims statutes. She also served as the Central District Office’s Civil Health Care Fraud Coordinator for eleven years. Within her new role, Weiss will utilize her regulatory knowledge and expertise detecting and reporting fraud to help clients within the healthcare landscape avoid and address compliance risks.

"Wendy joins the practice at a time when healthcare fraud and enforcement actions are growing in complexity and volume,” said Kevin Cornish, Managing Director and Leader of Navigant’s Healthcare and Life Sciences Disputes, Compliance and Investigations group. “Wendy’s deep experience in the healthcare industry and unique perspectives from the DOJ will bring a wealth of knowledge to clients in the areas of litigation, investigation and compliance.”

Weiss is a sought after speaker at conferences nationwide pertaining to healthcare compliance, the Federal False Claims Act, and Qui Tam actions. She has received numerous awards from the Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“It is an exciting time to join Navigant and this team,” said Weiss. “The current regulatory landscape continues to create challenges for clients in the healthcare industry, and I look forward to working with clients to address these issues and provide high value solutions.”
