Anna Dover is the co-chair of Milberg’s false claims act or “qui tam” department.  Her practice encompasses lawsuits brought by whistleblowers on behalf of the government under the federal and state false claims acts.  Many of the whistleblowers Ms. Dover has represented have exposed Medicare and Medicaid fraud in the health care and pharmaceutical industries, including off-label marketing schemes by pharmaceutical companies, illegal kickback arrangements between health care entities, and upcoding by nursing facilities, home health agencies, physical therapy providers, and similar entities.  Ms. Dover takes great pride in representing these courageous men and women who take great risks to expose the fraud they witnessed.  Ms. Dover also relies on her considerable litigation experience to pursue false claims act cases where the government did not intervene in the lawsuit, also known as “non-intervened” cases, which follow the path of more traditional litigation.

Ms. Dover recently represented a whistleblower who filed a false claims act lawsuit that exposed the fraudulent submission of Medicare and Medicaid healthcare claims by one of Tennessee’s largest home healthcare providers (CareAll Management and its affiliated entities).  The Government intervened in the whistleblower’s lawsuit and the case settled for $25 million.  The whistleblower Milberg represented received a $3.9 million share of the settlement.

In addition to her false claims act practice, Ms. Dover has extensive experience litigating claims brought under Section 36(b) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, including taking such cases to trial.  Before joining Milberg, Ms. Dover worked at a boutique firm in Los Angeles where she litigated legal malpractice and insurance cases.  Ms. Dover is also a longstanding member of the New York Inn of Court and has spoken at several of its CLE seminars over the years.  Ms. Dover is fluent in French and conversational in Greek.
