Nelson Hardiman LLP successfully resolved whistleblower claims brought against multiple firm clients under the Insurance Frauds Prevention Act. The plaintiff sought millions of dollars from the firm’s clients – addiction treatment facilities and laboratories – based on allegations that they had fraudulently billed commercial insurance for addiction treatment services. Nelson Hardiman filed summary judgment motions against the plaintiff, which pushed the plaintiff to settle her claims for pennies on the dollar.
