Jennifer Williams is an associate in Crowell & Moring’s Washington, D.C. office where she practices in the Health Care Group and is a member of the Digital Health Practice.

In her health care practice, Jennifer represents hospitals and health care providers, managed care companies, medical device suppliers and manufacturers, digital health startups, and health information technology organizations. She also provides such entities with counsel on regulatory and compliance matters. Jennifer also has an active pro bono practice and an affinity for representing children in foster care. Her recent work includes:

  • Counseling clients about regulatory compliance matters, including Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation, health care fraud and abuse laws, Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, and FDA enforcement actions.
  • Providing strategic advice to a collaborative non-profit association of health IT and health care provider organizations.
  • Advising clients on appropriate responses to government subpoenas regarding conduct implicating the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, and the civil False Claims Act.
  • Drafting internal policies and procedures to ensure a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center’s (FQHC) compliance with HIPAA.
  • Representing a hospital system before the District of Columbia State Health Planning and Development Agency proceeding in a certificate of need matter.
  • Representing physicians seeking reinstatement of billing privileges in federal and state health care programs.
  • Representing a foster care parent in an adoption proceeding.

While in law school, Jennifer interned with the Honorable Alexander Williams, Jr. at the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. She also served as a White House intern in the Domestic Policy Office of Vice President Joe Biden, where she worked on many issues, including health care reform, education, and alternative energy. In addition, while interning at the Children's Defense Fund, Jennifer researched federal laws and policies that impact child welfare service delivery.

Prior to law school, Jennifer worked for a not-for-profit public health plan in California. She also served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for two children in foster care, which solidified her desire to pursue a legal education.
