He was named “2016-2017 Lawyer of the Year” in Tampa in Mass Torts (Defense) and Class Action Defense. With over 32 years’ experience he has tried dozens of criminal and civil cases to jury verdict and has successfully handled hundreds more. Mr. Napper has extensive experience guiding individuals and corporations, large and small, public and private, through the treacherous waters of criminal and civil investigations and trials. Much of his work results in favorable resolutions before a case becomes public or goes to trial. He understands that clients entrust him with their assets, their lives and their integrity.

Our services include the representation of C suite executives, business owners, healthcare executives (including physicians), CEOs, healthcare networks, hospitals and other entities in a broad array of civil and criminal matters. We represent individuals in state and federal grand jury investigations conducted by the United States Department of Justice, the United States Attorney’s Office and the Florida Attorney General’s office. Criminal enforcement has increased in recent years in the areas of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), Healthcare fraud, Securities and finance enforcement, Accounting fraud, Antitrust violations, Defense Contractor fraud, and Environmental regulation. Harsh penalties such as stiff fines and lengthy incarcerations are frequently sought for business executives. Effective representation in a criminal investigation or prosecution requires not only knowledge of the criminal statutes and rules, but also experience with the offices and agencies that enforce them. We have significant successful experience with the governmental agencies which bring these investigations and prosecutions.

We have extensive jury trial experience handling professional liability matters for healthcare providers including anesthesiologists, surgeons, radiologists, Internal medicine specialists and other medical specialties. We represent hospitals and physicians in birth injury, failure to diagnose, surgical malpractice and other matters involving allegations of professional negligence. We offer a full spectrum of legal services to providers in the ever changing landscape of the healthcare field. We have successfully defended at trial and in hearings, hospitals, physicians and other healthcare providers in medical malpractice litigation, licensing and medical staff disputes and other issues in the healthcare industry.
