Bio/Pharmaceutical Legal Congress

Ensure Appropriate Due Diligence to Minimize Corporate Liability in U.S. and Global Operations

June 7-8, 2011
  • Falls Church, VA

CBI produces some of the most respected and well attended compliance conferences in the life science industry.  Building off the success within the compliance realm, CBI is offering its Premier Bio/Pharmaceutical Legal Congress. This congress addresses all of the legal challenges that in-house counsel face on a day-to-day basis and provides a forum for benchmarking and networking.    

With increased government focus and negative attention on the pharmaceutical industry, legal departments are faced with assessing and mitigating risk across the company and in the field. Recent Dodd-Frank, Park Doctrine, FCPA and Paragraph IV settlements have legal professionals on high alert. Discuss these cases and discover better ways to perform due diligence to keep your company out of the legal spotlight.

The interactive format allows attendees to choose their own conference agenda and interact directly with their peers in focused settings.

Elite Faculty Includes Perspectives from:

  • FDA Office of the Chief Counsel

  • U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania

  • U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York

  • U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts

  • GlaxoSmithKline

  • Pfizer Inc

  • Allergan

  • Lundbeck Inc.

  • Boehringer Ingelheim

  • Mylan Pharmaceuticals
