Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP has long been a go-to firm in the fields of cross-border enforcement, government investigations and criminal defense. We have a proven record of navigating difficult regulatory and criminal issues, from high profile investigations, parallel criminal and regulatory proceedings to the latest hot-button international enforcement situations.

The RK&O team understands the enforcement perspective and can foresee future challenges lurking around the corner. We deeply understand the importance of international cooperation and the complications of regulatory exposure in multiple jurisdictions.
The U.S. and international enforcement authorities have demonstrated continued focus on the life sciences industry for FCPA and anti-corruption violations as shown by prominent international investigations and intensified government compliance outlooks. This emphasis is critical for mid-market businesses with underdeveloped compliance programs. Clinical research organizations, hospitals, and providers have also high enforcement risks due to healthcare globalization.
Life Sciences companies should know how to respond to this daunting climate and, eventually, battle anti-corruption risk factors which are confronting the industry. This includes more than just direct relationships with government, it includes third party, supply chain and distribution relationships, all of which expose industry participants to FCPA risk.
In this two-hour Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help Pharma/Life Sciences Industry understand the fundamental and complex aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the various FCPA/Anti-Corruption compliance issues every Pharma/Life Sciences company should know. Speakers will also offer the audience with best practices in developing and implementing an effective compliance and risk management program.
Key topics include:
- FCPA/Anti-Corruption in Pharma/Life Sciences Industry: Current Trends
- Notable Cases for Guidance
- Common Anti-Corruption Risks
- Best Compliance Practices
- Risk Factor Management
