King & Spalding Takes Major Role at CBI’s 10th Annual Pharmaceutical Compliance Congress

23 Jan 2013

WASHINGTON, January 23, 2013 Five King & Spalding lawyers are set to participate in The Center for Business Intelligence’s 10th Annual Pharmaceutical Compliance Congress in Washington, D.C., on January 29. King & Spalding is a sponsor of the event.

This premier life science compliance forum brings together in-house counsel, compliance officers and other pharmaceutical manufacturer personnel to share best practices in all facets of compliance.

“As the federal government continues to pursue investigations and announce large-dollar settlements for healthcare fraud enforcement, compliance professionals are continually working to better their internal processes, oversight and strategy to propel corporate compliance programs forward and instill a culture of ethics and integrity across their organizations,” said Michael Petty, a King & Spalding partner participating in the forum. “Best practices are ever-evolving and the Pharmaceutical Compliance Congress will unite senior-level executives to share innovative efforts, lessons learned and compliance successes.”

Four King & Spalding lawyers will provide a post-election update titled “The Next 4 Years – What to Expect Post-Elections from Congress, the States, FDA and CMS ”:

  • Seth H. Lundy, partner, deputy leader, FDA and life sciences practice
  • Former Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., senior counsel, government investigations and public policy practice
  • Michael Petty, partner, FDA and life sciences practice; former associate chief counsel for enforcement, FDA; and former vice president of development and regulatory law, Amgen Inc.
  • Mark D. Polston, partner, healthcare practice; former deputy associate general counsel for litigation, CMS division, Department of Health and Human Services Office of General Counsel

In addition, King & Spalding FDA and life sciences partners Marian Lee and Michael Petty will lead a breakout session on compliance considerations related to clinical research and pre-approval communications, titled “Communication Strategies during Pre-Approval and Pre-Launch – How to Treat Emerging Clinical Data.”
