Robert W. Liles, JD, MBA, MS

Robert has worked in regulatory compliance as a Federal prosecutor and as defense counsel, for more than 25 years. Robert focuses his practice on fraud defense, internal audits, investigations, compliance and regulatory matters. He has represented both individuals and entities in administrative and civil proceedings and in connection with internal compliance reviews.

Robert is a nationally recognized speaker and educator on legal and regulatory issues. His extensive health care management education / background and his prior experience as a federal prosecutor provide a real-world perspective when advising individuals and entities on enforcement and regulatory compliance issues. He has also represented health care providers in connection with government regulatory investigations and audits by UPICs, ZPICs, SMERCs, RACs and reviews by SIUs working for private payor plans.

He holds master's degrees in both Business and Health Care Administration. After graduating from law school, he was hired as an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) in the Southern District of Texas (SDTX) primarily to handle False Claims Act matters and cases. He was later promoted to serve as Chief of the Financial Litigation Unit. Shortly after the passage of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Robert was asked to serve as the first National Health Care Fraud Coordinator and was later promoted to the position of Deputy Director, Legal Programs, for the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA), a component of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) where he advised on civil and criminal fraud statutes, schemes, investigative tools, privacy concerns, and compliance issues. He was instrumental in writing and implementing DOJ guidance on the judicious use of the False Claims Act. Robert received "Director's Award," the highest award that can be bestowed by the agency, for his work.

Paul Weidenfeld, JD

Paul Weidenfeld is nationally recognized for his work in both the prosecution and defense of Healthcare Fraud investigations, False Claims Act cases and qui tam litigation. He has earned numerous awards including the prestigious Attorney General Award for Fraud Prevention and Nightingale Outstanding Healthcare Litigator.

A former Health Care Fraud Coordinator for the Executive Office of the Department of Justice, Paul has represented providers and individuals in Healthcare Fraud matters since leaving the department. Whether serving as mediator, litigation consultant or legal representative, or trying to understand and help craft solutions to even the most difficult litigation problems, Paul draws upon a broad range of experiences as a lawyer/litigator that includes over 50 trials, 25 appellate arguments and appearances before the United States Supreme Court, Federal and State Appellate Courts, and Federal and State trial courts.

He has also represented health care providers in connection with government regulatory investigations and audits by UPICs, ZPICs, SMERCs, RACs and reviews by SIUs working for private payor plans. He brings a unique perspective to False Claims Act cases, Fraud Investigations and Qui Tam, or whistleblower, lawsuits which is partly the result of his rare combination of having BOTH extensive litigation experience (more than 50 trials and 25 appellate) AND subject matter expertise (10 years as a fraud prosecutor, 2 years as the DOJ Healthcare Fraud Coordinator, and experience as a partner in a major healthcare law-firm). Paul's experiences have taught him that there is no one-size-fits-all in the world of settlement or conflict resolution, and he is well known for his ability to find innovative solutions to difficult litigation problems.
