    Attorney Profile

    Kirk Ogrosky is an accomplished trial attorney who represents clients in civil and criminal enforcement actions, government investigations, and global anti-corruption matters. He has a distinguished record of conducting internal investigations, implementing corrective action plans, and negotiating favorable resolutions. A zealous advocate, he has handled multi-billion-dollar disputes in alleged fraud matters, and has taken over 40 defendants to verdict in federal jury trials over the past 20 years. In 2017 alone, he spent 18 weeks in trial before federal juries in multiple jurisdictions.

    As the former Deputy Chief of the Fraud Section within the U.S. Department of Justice, Kirk brings an uncommon enforcement perspective to bear in his work for a wide range of clients. He has been recognized as the key architect behind modern healthcare enforcement after founding the Medicare Fraud Strike Force at DOJ, and he was one of the first to harness the use of data analytics to examine claims, marketing and compliance related corporate functions. Prior to the Fraud Section, he served as an Assistant US Attorney in the Southern District of Florida and an Assistant Attorney General in Kentucky. Clients seek him out to handle critical matters citing his “healthcare expertise and trial skills.”

    He clerked for United States District Judge Patricia A. Seitz in the Southern District of Florida.  He teaches the annual healthcare fraud and abuse course at Georgetown Law School.  He is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis and The George Washington University Law School.
