Natalie Adams and Jason Mehta Comment on Gilead Sciences $131M Judgment

09 March 2023 Daily Business Review News

Foley & Lardner LLP Partners Natalie Adams and Jason Mehta are quoted in the Daily Business Review article, “Florida Judge Awards Gilead Sciences $131M Judgment,” discussing the impact of Gilead Sciences taking matters into their own hands in its lawsuit against defendants for their alleged scheme to steal millions of dollars from the company’s medical assistance program.

“It is helpful now for companies to have counsel who know how to use sophisticated statutes on their own,” Adams said. “They don’t need to wait for the government to rescue them or prosecute these cases on their behalf.”

“When you see a judgment like this one for $131 million, that’s really meaningful and in some respects, it is as powerful or nearly as powerful as criminal prosecution,” Mehta added.
