Marty Basu is an associate at the Cotsirilos Firm. Since joining the firm in 2012, Mr. Basu has represented clients in a variety of criminal matters including healthcare fraud, wire fraud, securities fraud, tax fraud, bank fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations. Mr. Basu has also defended clients in civil commercial litigation matters including securities fraud, antitrust claims, enforcement of non-compete and non-solicit agreements, and unfair competition.
Most recently, Mr. Basu, with partner Ted Poulos, obtained an acquittal on behalf of our client in U.S. v. Novak, et al., 13 CR 312 (N.D. Ill.). Mr. Basu and Mr. Poulos defended a physician with contracts at Sacred Heart Hospital who was charged under the Anti-kickback statute. Mr. Basu and Mr. Poulos effectively demonstrated at trial that the doctor never referred patients to the hospital in exchange for payments under any contracts, and the client was found not guilty on all counts. As reported by the Chicago Tribune, this victory was the first setback in the government's prosecution of doctors and hospital administrators from Sacred Heart Hospital.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Basu was an associate at Kirkland and Ellis where he focused primarily in complex commercial litigation.
