Health Care Fraud Chief Gobena to Hogan Lovells

The lead health care prosecutor at the Justice Department is heading to Hogan Lovells.


Gejaa Gobena will join the firm’s Washington office.

As head of the Department’s health care fraud unit, Gobena supervised prosecutions brought by Medicare Fraud Strike Force teams across the country and spearheading the unit’s recent shift to investigating and prosecuting broader corporate health care fraud schemes.

In that position, he oversaw the prosecution of over a thousand individuals for health care fraud, including last week’s historic national health care fraud takedown which involved charging more than 300 individuals accused of committing fraud costing the government $900 million.

“Government agencies are evolving their enforcement strategies through innovations in technology, data and new legal theories,” said Hogan Lovell’s Crispin Rapinet. “The range of Gejaa’s Department of Justice experience handling both False Claims Act cases as a younger lawyer and then in fraud prosecutions for the Criminal Division gives him tremendous skill as well as insight into the personalities and priorities driving Department of Justice decision-making, all of which will be of great value to our clients.”

Gobena earned his J.D. from Columbia University School of Law and his B.A. from The University of Virginia.
