WASHINGTON, October 25, 2007— King & Spalding, a leading international law firm, will provide significant substantive support to one of the pharmaceutical industry's premier fraud & abuse compliance conferences, as three attorneys in the firm's FDA/ Healthcare practice will present at the 8th Annual Pharmaceutical Regulatory and Compliance Congress. The conference will take place in Washington, D.C. November 7 - 9, 2007. The firm will also serve as a bronze-level sponsor of this significant industry event.
Partners John Bentivoglio and Kelly N. Reeves and counsel John Shakow will present three separate panels on the second day of the conference. Bentivoglio -- co-leader of King & Spalding's FDA/ Healthcare group and a member of the planning committee for the Congress -- will be speaking on compliance with state marketing, ethics and disclosure laws. Reeves will be describing how pharmaceutical manufacturers can conduct comprehensive and effective clinical research compliance assessments. Shakow will be addressing third party contracting and compliance in light of recent regulatory activity in pharmaceutical pricing.
The Pharmaceutical Regulatory and Compliance Congress was established 1999 in response to the heightened need for corporate compliance programs, increased government scrutiny and new regulations being imposed upon the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical professionals looking for a comprehensive understanding of the current and future compliance laws and regulations and enforcement initiatives affecting the pharmaceutical industry should plan to attend.
