CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — DHG is aware of the allegations being made against the firm by Compliance Education Institute (CEI).  As soon as DHG was notified of concerns by CEI about the use of excerpts of educational materials CEI claims to have developed, we promptly removed all copies of the materials in question from our website and other publicly accessible locations. It is important to point out that DHG received no revenue from the use of the information and has since tried in good faith to resolve the issue with CEI. Rather than working with us to reach a fair and amicable solution, CEI has chosen to file a lawsuit in what appears to be a strategy to negatively impact DHG’s reputation to obtain an unsubstantiated settlement.  DHG has a long-standing reputation as an industry leader and as a trusted advisor to its clients.  The firm is hopeful that this matter can be resolved soon.
