Free Webinar on FCPA/Anti-Corruption Compliance in Pharma/Life Sciences Industry for October 6th at 12:00 pm ET

New York, NY, September 26, 2016 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: FCPA/Anti-Corruption Compliance in Pharma/Life Sciences Industry. This two-hour event is scheduled on October 6, 2016 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis:

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 also have 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 confronting the industry. This includes more than just direct relationships with government. It also extends to 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 the 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 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

Speakers/Faculty Panel are: Laura L. Flippin, Partner with DLA Piper LLP, William P. Barry, Partner with Richards Kibbe & Orbe LLP and Pei Li Wong, Managing Director with BDO Consulting. For an updated list of the faculty panel, please visit:
