CHICAGO, IL—Anthony “Tony” Burba has rejoined Barnes & Thornburg’s Litigation Department as a partner in its Chicago office to focus on white collar and government investigations. He joins from the Fraud Section of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), where he served as a trial attorney on the corporate and Appalachian Regional Prescription Opioid strike forces in Nashville.
As a prosecutor, Burba investigated and prosecuted complex corporate healthcare fraud cases, often dealing with abusive prescribing of powerful opioids for the personal profit of the prescriber.

Burba also regularly assists clients in building and improving complex compliance programs and developing internal controls to ensure compliant operations.
