Kandis’ whistleblower practice focuses on healthcare fraud. Kandis represents relators in high stakes qui tam actions filed under the federal and state False Claims Acts relating to fraud on government healthcare payors such as Medicare, Medicaid, Department of Defense TRICARE, State Children’s Health Insurance Program, Veterans Health Administration, and the Indian Health Service program.
Kandis has a particular passion for litigating false claims cases relating to the opioid crisis, including claims for illegal activity committed by drug companies, providers, and pharmacies. Kandis does not just pursue claims against companies, but against the executives and individuals responsible for the fraudulent schemes. Kandis also has a particular interest in holding healthcare-focused private equity firms responsible for the fraudulent acts of their portfolio companies.
Kandis litigates and manages complex qui tam cases in which the government declines to intervene. While many whistleblower lawyers often do not have the experience or resources to litigate complex declined cases, Kandis utilizes her extensive experience and background as a commercial litigator to successfully prosecute declined cases.
Kandis is a member of Taxpayers Against Fraud, a public interest non-profit in the United States dedicated to advancing the interests of whistleblowers and fighting fraud against the government. She is also a member of the YLD division within Taxpayers Against Fraud.
