David E. Thiess

David Thiess helps healthcare clients navigate a complex system of legal requirements, with a creative eye toward developing competitive business strategies, defending against wide-ranging government investigations, reviewing key transactions, and developing prudent compliance systems.

At these pivotal junctures, clients rely on David's in-depth experience with the federal fraud and abuse laws – including the Anti-Kickback Statute and Physician Self-Referral (Stark) Law – and other manifold regulatory requirements to help them reach innovative and compliant solutions.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, David worked at another international law firm focusing on similar matters. David began his career at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), where he focused on Stark Law matters, including self-disclosure submissions, as well as key health reform initiatives, such as the Medicare Shared Savings Program and CMS demonstration programs. During law school, he served on the Articles Review Board and Editorial Board of the Virginia Journal of Social Policy and the Law.
