Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP, Partner

Washington, District of Columbia

Murad Hussain is an experienced trial lawyer who represents clients in all stages of criminal prosecutions, government-facing litigation, and related investigations. His practice focuses on defending and counseling life sciences innovators, healthcare providers, government contractors, and others in matters involving the False Claims Act (FCA), criminal fraud laws, the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS), Medicare regulatory decisions, and the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). He also helps clients use their business data to promote internal compliance and counter the government’s use—and misuse—of data analytics and statistics during investigations and trial. He has been recognized by the Legal 500 as a “Next Generation Partner” for healthcare and life sciences matters, by DC’s Best Lawyers for white collar criminal defense and FCA qui tam defense, and by DC’s Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star.” He serves on the firm’s Pro Bono Committee, as the partner editor for the firm’s Enforcement Edge blog, and as an Adjunct Professor of trial practice at the Georgetown University Law Center. Mr. Hussain is an accomplished advocate for both plaintiffs and defendants facing the US Department of Justice. Most recently, he led the team that brought former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wrongful termination suit, defeated the government’s summary judgment motion, and negotiated the settlement restoring Mr. McCabe’s retirement status and benefits, with Attorney General Garland later telling Congress that DOJ settled “because of a likelihood of loss on the merits.” Mr. 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. Mr. Hussain served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ellen Segal Huvelle of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. He earned his law degree from Yale Law School, where he received the Potter Stewart Prize for best moot court team and the President’s Public Service Fellowship. Before law school, he worked as a creative executive at a Hollywood studio-based production company.
