Phillip Zane

Mr. Zane joined George Mason University's adjunct faculty in the fall of 2014. He practiced law for more than two decades, focusing on federal criminal and civil investigations, litigation, trials, and appeals. A significant portion of that practice was been devoted to healthcare law, particularly Medicare fraud and antitrust (competition) issues. Mr. Zane is a former Fellow of the Thomas J. Watson Foundation. He clerked for Circuit Judge Morris S. Arnold of U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. He is a frequent contributor to professional journals in the areas of antitrust law, criminal procedure, and game theory, and he dabbles in legal history. Mr. Zane's pro bono work has included representation of charities and individuals. In 2010 he received the Mitch Snyder Extraordinary Performance Award for Outstanding Work in the Homeless Community from the Community for Creative Non-Violence in Washington, D.C.
