The focus is on the False Claims Act and positive health care recovery issues.

Washington – June 22, 2022: Jed Wolfecott joins Crowell & Moring’s Washington office as a partner in the Litigation and Healthcare teams, where he will represent corporate clients as plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation spanning a wide range of industries, primarily healthcare, pharmaceuticals, sciences about life, government contracts and technology. He will also represent companies involved in False Claims Act investigations, and strike there litigation.

Wulfekotte has extensive litigation practice in state and federal courts across the country, as well as on arbitration boards. His practice focuses on identifying, developing and litigating positive reimbursement issues for major health insurance companies. Last year, he served as co-counsel for Crowell & Moring in two complex arbitration hearings on the merits for a Fortune 50 health insurance company against large retail pharmacies. Notably, Wulfekotte has a record of victories, having received almost $750 million for his clients in healthcare fraud and collection cases.

“We have had ample opportunity to observe Jed’s talents while working side by side with him on two high-stakes arbitrations for one of the nation’s largest healthcare programs. He is a highly experienced trial attorney and litigator,” said Keith J. Harrison, co-chair of the Crowell & Moring litigation group. “While Jed will focus on rebuilding the healthcare system, he is a sophisticated commercial lawyer who will strengthen our dock to tackle complex healthcare-related issues.”

“Jed is strategically positioned and will be an immediate asset to our healthcare clients given his keen regulatory litigation skills and creative client solutions,” said Chris Flynn, chairman of Crowell & Moring’s Health Care Group. “His extensive experience representing clients in FCA investigations and litigation will bring valuable insights to our clients.”

Wolfecott received his law degree from American University’s Washington College of Law and his bachelor’s degree from Muhlenberg College, where he was a member of the NCAA varsity wrestling team. He was President of the Asia Pacific American Bar Association of Greater Washington, D.C. and the Board of Directors of the Asia Pacific American Bar Association Educational Foundation.
