Carrie Sarhangi Love



Carrie Love resolves government investigations and inquiries, enforcement proceedings, and complex litigation for private plaintiffs and corporate clients — often large pharmaceutical and medical device companies and higher education institutions — and she helps clients avoid government scrutiny through strategic compliance counseling. Her routine, front-facing interactions with the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and other government entities gives her essential insights into how investigations and enforcement actions can be negotiated in favor of her clients or dismissed entirely.

White-Collar Defense & Investigations

As a Chambers-ranked partner, the depth of Carrie’s trial experience is sought by clients facing high-stakes government enforcement, internal investigations and litigation. A skilled and seasoned trial attorney, Carrie is a strong advocate for clients when unwanted government attention arises, leveraging her litigation experience and regulatory fluency to guide clients through complex investigations and enforcement actions when the stakes are at their highest. When investigations focus on C-suite executives, create noise in the news cycle and involve sensitive topics, clients look to Carrie’s extensive experience with internal investigations. She provides counsel in critical employment matters, particularly matters at the nexus of compliance and employment.

Health Care Fraud & Whistleblower Statutes

Carrie counsels health and life sciences industry clients who are facing government investigations and allegations involving health care fraud and whistleblower statutes. In addition to counseling higher education and financial services clients, Carrie routinely advises some of the largest pharmaceutical and medical device companies on matters involving:

  • False Claims Act
  • U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
  • Patient support programs
  • Pharmaceutical product marketing

Compliance Counseling

Carrie is currently seconded to a major pharmaceutical company as assistant general counsel, where she advises on cutting-edge legal and compliance issues. As a subject matter authority on historical and trending OIG guidance, Carrie leverages these capabilities to develop in-house compliance rehabilitation and operationalization for clients. Carrie’s compliance counseling extends to varied industries such as higher education and financial services, where she develops compliance programs and trainings to help avoid risk and exposure. With a former secondment as the chief U.S. compliance officer for a large pharmaceutical company, Carrie anticipates risk for clients and institutes global compliance, training and reporting programs to help eliminate vulnerabilities. She guides clients through complex federal and state regulatory hurdles, mitigating exposure in the marketing, promotion, manufacturing, sale and distribution of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

Higher Education

Carrie defends colleges and universities in government investigations including Title IX, OCR defense and related litigation. She also represents education clients in high-stakes litigation with reputational impact, such as student misconduct and issues resulting in purported liability to the institution.

Personal Interests

Carrie enjoys running and cooking, and likes to spend time with her family near the Finger Lakes region.
