Ty Howard brings the perspective of a former state and federal prosecutor to defending and counseling businesses and individuals involved in government investigations, compliance matters, False Claims Act and whistleblower cases, related business litigation, and white-collar criminal matters. As a litigator and chair of Bradley’s Government Enforcement and Investigations group, he works collaboratively with clients, across many industries, to find creative solutions to their compliance needs, to conduct sensitive investigations and negotiations, and—when necessary—to mount a vigorous defense.

Ty joined the firm after nearly a decade as a federal and state prosecutor, most recently as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the White Collar and Economic Crimes division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee. As an AUSA, Ty led investigations and prosecutions of some of Tennessee’s largest fraud cases, first-chaired numerous jury trials, and argued successfully before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. He previously worked as an associate in the litigation departments of two large international firms based in Philadelphia.

Ty’s practice spans several industry sectors including healthcare, financial services, and government contracting, and he regularly counsels clients on healthcare fraud and abuse, anti-corruption, and securities regulation issues. His practice includes:

  • Healthcare: Ty represents persons and entities at nearly every level of the healthcare industry, including corporate medical practices, individual physicians, physician-owned entities, nurses, and healthcare executives. He also has specific expertise with the pharmacy, hospice, home-health, and pharmaceutical industries. He has handled matters involving HHS-OIG, the FDA, CMS, DOJ, and whistleblower FCA actions.
  • Finance, Securities, and AML: Ty represents banks, banking executives, brokers, financial institutions, and investment professionals in regulatory matters involving the SEC, FINRA, the CFPB, the CFTC, and related federal and state agencies. He has worked extensively as a prosecutor and defense attorney on anti-money laundering, securities fraud, and related areas.
  • Anti-Corruption: Ty works with companies of all sizes to ensure their compliance with global anti-corruption laws and regulations. He represents clients facing investigation under the FCPA, UK Bribery Act, and similar anti-corruption laws.
  • Anti-trust: Ty represents companies and executives across multiple industries that are facing antitrust investigations or civil or criminal antitrust litigation with the DOJ's Antitrust Division, the Japanese Fair Trade Commission, and related domestic and foreign regulators.
