Practice groupLitigation

Hilary LoCicero combines her lengthy experience conducting government and internal investigations with a deep understanding of her clients' business and legal needs.

She helps companies and individuals working in healthcare and other regulated industries to navigate the increasingly complex legal and regulatory worlds. This involves both spotting issues before they become problems and addressing those that have already arisen and helping to resolve them favorably.

Hilary regularly counsels healthcare clients in connection with fraud and false statement matters, related criminal and civil False Claims Act matters, complex civil litigation involving allegations of healthcare fraud, and actions before state agencies that regulate healthcare.

Hilary likewise has represented numerous clients in connection with investigations, negotiations, and dispositions in Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and sanctions matters. Her experience in this area extends to compliance issues such as due diligence in connection with business transactions, ongoing ethics and compliance counseling, and assistance with post-resolution compliance.

She also handles matters involving government contracting fraud, tax fraud, accounting fraud, election fraud, campaign finance matters, conspiracy, professional misconduct, suspension and debarment, and criminal and civil forfeiture.

Prior to entering private practice, she clerked for Judge Mary Milloy of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas and Judge Lynn Bush of the United States Court of Federal Claims.
