Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

During her 35 years of legal practice, Kathy Weinman has represented many companies, executives, and licensed professionals associated with a variety of industries. She has particularly significant experience representing clients in the health care, pharmaceutical, medical device, financial services, and investment banking industries.

Kathy works predominantly for clients faced with governmental investigations and enforcement actions, but she has also assisted clients in conducting sensitive internal investigations of suspected misconduct or noncompliance in order to avoid or minimize the damage from any adverse action by the government or other parties.

Kathy is highly experienced in responding to investigations and government charges, and she has handled numerous hearings, trials, and appeals related to actions by state and federal prosecutors, as well as governmental agencies. As a result, Kathy has successfully dealt with a wide array of problems, including issues related to suspected health care fraud, off-label promotion of drugs and medical devices, improper pricing and kickbacks, bank fraud, securities law violations, conflict of interest rules, and gift/gratuity rules affecting brokers and traders, as well as public corruption and government contracting fraud.

Kathy began her legal career at a large firm's Washington, D.C. office, where she practiced for several years. In addition to her role as a founding partner of Collora (now part of Hogan Lovells), Kathy is an active leader of the Boston Bar Association where she served as president and member of the Executive Committee, previously co-chaired the Criminal Law Section, and recently co-chaired its Criminal Justice Reform Working Group.
