Danielle Bruno McDermott published an article, “Effective Response Strategies for Government Investigations,” in the Lawyers Journal of the Allegheny County Bar Association.
She wrote: “Regulatory enforcement is on the rise, including an increase in government investigations of organizations. In the last year, the Department of Justice pledged additional oversight in a variety of areas, focusing on cybersecurity-related fraud by government contractors, illegal cryptocurrency use, and healthcare fraud and abuse, just to name a few. In Pennsylvania, there has also been a noticeable uptick in investigations, particularly by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, a trend that shows no sign of slowing down. This landscape of intensified regulatory and prosecutorial scrutiny presents risks to organizations, especially those already subject to increased oversight or within industries subject to fraud and abuse.”
