Deaton Speaks with AmLaw on Trends in Qui Tam ActionsMarch 29, 2017
O’Melveny partner David Deaton was interviewed for the March 29, 2017, piece “Industry Insights: A Healthy Demand for Lawyering in the Health Insurance Sector,” published in The American Lawyer. The article discusses the surge in health insurance-related legal work as the country “wrestles with solutions for affordable health care.”
Deaton told the publication that he has observed a shift in health care-related government investigations, with qui tam cases moving away from pharmaceutical companies and hospitals and toward the managed care industry.
Deaton represents major health care organizations in complex, high-stakes regulatory, enforcement, and business matters. He serves as co-chair of O’Melveny’s Health Care and Life Sciences Practice and resides in the firm’s Washington, DC office.
