Robert Platt represents clients in government and internal investigations in matters involving the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and other federal enforcement and regulatory agencies. With a focus on the healthcare industry, Rob represents clients facing regulatory investigations and enforcement actions in light of evolving standards of government regulators.

More specifically, Rob’s practice involves:

  • White Collar Criminal Defense – Rob defends individuals facing potential criminal liability. His involvement is comprehensive, ranging from strategy development at the outset of an investigation to representing his clients through trial, if necessary. Rob gained significant courtroom experience as the lead associate of a trial team representing an executive charged with, among other things, conspiracy to commit wire fraud. After a multi-month trial in the Eastern District of Tennessee, the jury acquitted his client on six of seven counts, including conspiracy.
  • Government & Internal Investigations – Rob is also involved in conducting internal investigations for public and private companies. Rob is deeply engrained in matters and is regularly called upon to identify potential liabilities, conduct witness interviews, lead document review and analysis, and prepare comprehensive reports. His work provides clients the opportunity to address potential issues to limit the risk of civil liability and reduce exposure to potential criminal action.
  • Healthcare Fraud & Abuse – Rob defends healthcare clients in litigation arising under the False Claims Act and investigations conducted by DOJ, United States Attorneys’ Offices, and the Office of Inspector General for HHS.

Rob is a contributor to the firm’s annual Healthcare Fraud Year in Review and our Inside the FCA Blog. He is involved with various firm-wide initiatives and serves as a member of the firm’s Attorney Life Committee.

While in law school, Rob served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Ricardo M. Urbina of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, a law clerk at Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and as a legal extern in the Office of Counsel to the Inspector General for HHS.
