    Among her recent matters, Jen represented a Japanese medical device manufacturer in a False Claims Act investigation and litigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Attorneys’ Office, serving as lead attorney and engaging in all aspects of the investigation, including government meetings and proffers, witness interviews, document productions and compliance with data privacy regulations and GDPR. She achieved a settlement without any penalties imposed on the client. She represented the same company in federal court challenging an arbitral award by the International Chamber of Commerce.
