Ryan Fawaz

Ryan Fawaz helps insurers uncover and combat fraud. He pursues complex insurance fraud cases of all types — health, auto, workers’ compensation, property — and represents his clients in state and federal courts around the country. From working with medical experts and helping detect fraudulent claim patterns to assessing the risks and rewards of taking offenders to court, Ryan’s clients rely on his insight and experience to protect themselves and eliminate wrongdoing.

Ryan works with medical, technology, financial, coding and in-house experts to identify trends and the parties driving systemic fraud, oftentimes before such claims are even made or paid. Once a fraud pattern has been established, Ryan helps his clients find quicker, less risky and costly alternatives to litigation to address concerns, including through different approaches to claims handling.

When a fraud case goes to court, Ryan helps his clients find the right strategy for the jurisdiction, for the market and for the clients’ business goals. Ryan handles fraud cases involving a wide variety of patterns of systemic fraud, including billing for unnecessary medical services, billing for services not rendered, upcoding, unbundling, violating anti-kickback and patient brokering laws, and violating state licensure laws and prohibitions on the corporate practice of medicine.

Ryan also defends clients facing government investigations and enforcement actions for RICO, antitrust and securities issues. He also represents directors of companies, public and private, in actions alleging breach of fiduciary duties and government investigations.
