Emily Gilman is an associate in the firm's Litigation Group. Ms. Gilman has worked on a variety of False Claims cases from investigation through discovery and summary judgment. Her cases have involved fraud related to Medicare coverage and reimbursement issues, the Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark law, and off-label marketing of pharmaceuticals.  She has represented relators against pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, managed care organizations, clinical diagnostic laboratories, skilled nursing facilities, pharmacies, and hospitals.  Ms. Gilman has also worked on several amicus briefs on behalf of the Taxpayers Against Fraud Education Fund.

Ms. Gilman and David Chizewer have recently been working with the Shriver Center on Poverty Law pro-bono on the joint representation of public housing and low-income residents in East Chicago living on environmentally contaminated land. The Shriver Center honored Goldberg Kohn with their Corporate Partner Award in 2017 for their assistance on this and other projects, and Ms. Gilman accepted the award on behalf of the firm. She led a roundtable discussion hosted by Net Impact UIC in April 2017 on the issues of this case as well.

In 2016, Ms. Gilman completed pro-bono research and analysis supporting a Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice petition to the Illinois Supreme Court. This petition achieved a change in Illinois Supreme Court Rules prohibiting shackling of juvenile defendants during court proceedings absent demonstrated cause, and promoting the independence of administrative hearing officers. Chicago Appleseed honored Goldberg Kohn with their Pro Bono Appreciation Award in 2017 for their assistance with this project.

Ms. Gilman received her law degree, cum laude, from the University of Michigan Law School in 2014. While in law school, Ms. Gilman served as Editor-in-Chief of the Michigan Journal of Race & Law and interned for the Honorable Joan Humphrey Lefkow of the Northern District of Illinois. She received her Master of Education from Arizona State University in 2011 while serving as a Teach For America corps member. She received her B.A. in History, with honors, in 2009 from the University of Chicago, where she was a member of the Maroon Key honor society.
