Theresa Thompson is an associate in the Corporate and Securities Practice Group in the firm's Washington, D.C. office.

Areas of Practice

Theresa's practice focuses on healthcare regulatory compliance. Theresa regularly assists health care provider clients in matters relating to physician self-referral (Stark law) and anti-kickback issues, provider licensure and operational state requirements, telehealth and telemedicine, the civil False Claims Act, Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid program reimbursement and compliance, and the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund. She is experienced in state and federal regulatory investigations, litigation, and compliance, including in response to administrative inquiries and appeals, government audits and investigations, subpoenas and civil investigative demands, and other anti-fraud and abuse enforcement efforts and regulatory touches.

Theresa was a contributing author to the 2021 Health Law and Compliance Update, co-authoring Chapter 1: Healthcare Emergency Relief Funding, and authoring Chapter 2: Telemedicine: Before, During, and After the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Theresa’s most significant pro bono efforts have been spent successfully pursuing a compassionate release case and advising a 501(c)(3) nonprofit mental health counseling organization in regard to licensure waivers during the COVID-19 public health emergency to expand access to mental health care services for frontline health care workers and their families.

Theresa received her J.D., with a Health Law Certificate, from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, where she also served as the Manuscripts Editor of the Journal of Health Care Law and Policy, President of the Student Health Law Organization, and Treasurer of the Women’s Bar Association. She is a recipient of two CALI Excellence for the Future Awards – one for the study of Health Law Fraud and Abuse and the other for Written and Oral Advocacy – and was part of a team that won first place in the Fifth Annual Health Law Regulatory and Compliance Competition.

While attending law school, Theresa became a Certified Student Attorney at the University of Maryland’s Public Health Law Clinic and worked with the Legal Resource Center for Public Health Policy. She also interned at:

  • the Division of Technical Payment Policy of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, where she analyzed the Stark Law and recommended potential regulatory clarifications for key terms;
  • the Health Policy, Patient Advocacy and Project Management Department of a not-for-profit Catholic health system in Maryland; and
  • the office of Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire.
