Chandra’s first career in healthcare management makes her well-suited to work with whistleblowers who report fraud or abuse by government contractors in the healthcare field.

Chandra Napora


Chandra Napora is a partner with Morgan Verkamp, having joined the firm in 2013. Prior to becoming a lawyer, Chandra worked in healthcare management and higher education administration, both of which make her particularly well-suited to working with whistleblowers who report fraud or abuse by government contractors in those arenas. She has worked on cases against large laboratories, hospitals, pharmacies, hospice providers, drug manufacturers, and for-profit nursing schools, resulting in the return to the United States taxpayers of over $250 million. 

Chandra’s first legal career was in transactional business and finance law with a large regional firm in Louisville, Kentucky. She brings that experience to Morgan Verkamp’s tax and securities fraud cases.

Prior to joining Morgan Verkamp, Chandra served for four years as a judicial clerk for the Hon. S. Arthur Spiegel in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, giving her deep and broad experience with federal litigation and a keen understanding of the federal judicial system. 

While in law school at the University of Cincinnati, Chandra served on the Law Review, was a fellow of the Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights, was a founding editor of the National Underground Railroad’s Freedom Center Journal, and was inducted into the Order of the Coif.

Something You May Not Know About Me

I graduated from high school at 16 and set off for parts unknown. I landed in Presidente Venceslau, a small town in the state of Sao Paulo in Brazil. I didn’t speak Portuguese, but understood enough to know that I was the first American to ever visit there, at least as far as anyone could remember. I took the cultural exchange responsibility very seriously and traded mix tapes for Portuguese lessons. Nine months later, I left REM, Tracy Chapman, and a little bit of my heart there and returned to the States with Elis Regina, Tom Jobim, and muitas saudades.
