Murad Hussain is a trial and investigations attorney who represents clients in criminal and civil enforcement cases and complex litigation. He defends and counsels life sciences innovators, healthcare providers, government contractors, and others in matters involving the False Claims Act (FCA) and criminal fraud laws, anti-corruption and anti-kickback statutes, and the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). He works closely with clients to analyze quantitative data and develop strategies to promote internal compliance and counter the government’s use – and misuse – of data and statistics during investigations and trial. He also serves on the firm’s Pro Bono Committee and regularly represents clients pro bono in criminal proceedings, civil rights and civil liberties lawsuits, and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) matters.
Professor Hussain is an experienced constitutional litigator, and currently represents former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in his wrongful termination lawsuit under the First and Fifth Amendments. Professor Hussain also defended Dr. Salomon Melgen at trial against claims of bribing US Senator Robert Menendez, and successfully argued for acquitting both men of all charges involving First Amendment-protected political contributions – a ruling that, in the New York Times‘ words, “blew a hole” in the prosecution’s case and led to the dismissal of all remaining charges.
Professor Hussain served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ellen Segal Huvelle of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
