Drug and device firms that violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) risk untold fines and hassles and even criminal charges.

Each year the list of FCPA violators gets longer and the fines go up.

In just the last two years, five major drug and device companies have been prosecuted and paid nearly $150 million in fines, disgorgement of profits, penalties and interest.

In 90 minutes, top international Washington lawyers Michael Burke and Ed Cadigan of Arnall Golden Gregory LLP reveal lies and misconceptions that can ensnare drug and device firms, leading to noncompliance with FCPA. Attendees will discover:

  •     The 10 misconceptions that may expose a firm to FCPA risk
  •     Recent changes to FCPA enforcement that impact life sciences companies
  •     How to identify FCPA red flags
  •     Supply-chain vulnerabilities
  •     Managing an effective FCPA compliance program
  •     Mitigating FCPA risk in contracts such as distribution agreement
  •     Potential interplay between the FCPA and the UK Bribery Act
  •     And much more!

The matter couldn’t be more timely. The Justice Dept. says it will step up FCPA enforcement against life sciences companies of all kinds. And Justice and the Securities & Exchange Commission have formed special FCPA Units dedicated to ferreting out FCPA violations across the corporate spectrum.

With millions of dollars and years of international legal woes potentially on the line, there’s no excuse for not protecting the organization.
