Practice groupGlobal Regulatory

For over a decade, Eliza Andonova has counseled health care companies on the complex laws that regulate the health care industry.

Eliza helps drug and device manufacturers navigate the complex health care fraud and abuse prohibitions related to their relationships with prescribers, payers, distributors, or patients. She works with manufacturers on some of the most important strategic decisions they make related to the commercialization of their products so that they can focus on providing life-sustaining and life-improving treatments.

Eliza's focus is on compliance with federal and state anti-kickback statutes, false claims laws, and the Civil Monetary Penalties Law. She advises manufacturers on the structure and implementation of patient support programs, product support services like reimbursement support or nurse educators, and charitable donations. She counsels clients on discount and rebate arrangements, agreements with purchasers and vendors, and the implementation and continued improvement of their compliance programs.

When things don't go according to plan, Eliza helps companies determine how to respond. She conducts internal investigations and advises on corrective actions. This may include self-disclosure to appropriate government agencies, and when necessary, defending against enforcement actions.

Eliza has advised a number of manufacturer clients in the negotiation and implementation of Corporate Integrity Agreements with the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. She also helps manufacturers and direct health care providers continually improve their compliance programs through conducting audits and training their employees on the legal and regulatory requirements and dynamic enforcement landscape.

After law school, Eliza served as a law clerk to the Honorable James H. Michael, Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia.
