Kathleen Fisher Enyeart

Kathleen Fisher Enyeart has been cited for her "exceptional record" in taking a forward-thinking approach to litigation, compliance and regulations, setting governance standards, and bringing "invaluable perspective" to clients because of her extensive experience as a white-collar litigator and in-house counsel.

Kathleen Fisher Enyeart, a seasoned litigator and former in-house attorney, is Counsel in Lathrop GPM's Litigation practice. Clients – many of them large corporations – trust Kathleen's experience and advice in guiding them through some of the most high-stakes matters companies can face, internal investigations, as well as civil and criminal investigations at both the state and federal levels. She has represented transportation companies, religious organizations, construction companies and educational institutions, among others. In white-collar and government investigative or regulatory matters, Kathleen represents businesses, owners and executives, including physicians, attorneys, dentists, accountants and other professionals. Her significant experience as a prosecutor, white-collar defense lawyer, and in-house counsel helps clients to navigate risks and challenges while maintaining their integrity and strengths.

Kathleen provides guidance and counsel to clients on matters such as:

  • Civil and criminal investigations
  • Corporate compliance
  • False Claims Act
  • Healthcare
  • Internal investigations
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Regulatory issues
  • Risk assessment
  • White-collar matters

Kathleen often helps clients respond to government investigations or deal with serious internal allegations. She thoroughly investigates the matter and then determines how best to protect the client's interest and defend against legal action. Her considerable experience as both a prosecutor and defending clients in white-collar criminal matters, as well as leading compliance programs for major corporations, gives her a unique perspective on how best to investigate, defend and mitigate risk when facing allegations of misconduct, always keeping in mind how best to protect the client's interests. 

When representing clients in healthcare litigation, she has deep experience handling a wide variety of healthcare issues, representing clients in False Claims Act matters, professional disciplinary matters, Stark law and anti-kickback statute disputes.

Kathleen's experience includes serving as Vice President and Chief Health Compliance Officer at Oracle Corporation where she spearheaded a global team of more than 100 specialists. She led Oracle's new Health Compliance Office, aligned M&A processes, advised on healthcare market expansions, and provided risk management counsel, including advising on medical device, AI and patient safety regulations in the US and EU. Before Oracle acquired the health IT company Cerner in 2022, Kathleen served as Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer at Cerner Corporation, where she led the compliance program including their global Foreign Corrupt Practices Act compliance. She held other pivotal roles such as Chief Privacy Officer and oversaw high-risk litigation matters.

Prior to going in-house, Kathleen was in private practice at Graves Garrett, LLC, where she focused on civil and criminal investigations, particularly in healthcare fraud, alongside defending and representing whistleblowers in qui tam/False Claims Act actions across multiple federal districts. She led comprehensive internal investigations for significant corporate clients, supervised complex civil litigation, and provided advice on compliance with various legal statutes like the False Claims Act and Anti-Kickback. Additionally, Enyeart played a key role in managing the firm's operations, including business strategy, growth and personnel management.

Earlier in her career, Kathleen served as an assistant prosecutor for the Buchanan County Prosecuting Attorney's Office where she litigated financial crimes, felony drug offenses, and crimes against women and children.


Why did you become a lawyer?

I became an attorney because I wanted to help people. I also have an analytical mind and enjoy the challenge of unraveling complicated situations and finding the evidence that best supports client's positions. When I was a prosecutor, I found helping crime victims seek justice very fulfilling. In private practice, I enjoy working with businesses and professionals facing complicated legal matters and helping to guide them through challenging circumstances.

I am passionate about the work I do because I believe in justice. I aim to do everything possible to represent the client's interest and make the most compelling argument possible to the court or jury. Thoroughly investigating every angle of the case and finding the critical evidence to support a client's position can make the difference in achieving a just outcome. 

What do you do outside of work?

I love spending time with my family. My husband and I love watching our children's sports and being active with our family. I love running, biking, swimming, skiing, hiking and being outdoors. We also love to travel with our family and see new places.
