Kevin D. Feder is a healthcare litigator. He represents clients in trials and arbitrations, and focuses his practice on representing managed care payers in provider litigation and False Claims Act cases. Kevin recently defended a large municipality in a seven-day jury trial, represented a family of health plans in a five-day arbitration, and argued an appeal in a long-running criminal case.

Kevin works collaboratively with his in-house and non-lawyer clients to tailor cost-effective litigation strategies that fit the needs of their business, then executes on those strategies by vigorously defending his clients’ interests in litigation. Kevin believes that successful client engagement involves clear, up-front communication by outside counsel, coupled with tactical thinking, good listening skills, and a healthy dose of common sense.
