Fraud Investigation & Dispute Services, Life Sciences team
Industry insight and global experience: the intelligent connection
Tighter competition, regulatory scrutiny and tough enforcement heighten the risk of litigation and non-compliance. In your industry, compliance issues and risk factors need to be addressed at every turn from research and development to marketing strategies and supply chain integrity. And the scrutiny of regulators and customers alike is increasing and rapidly changing.
Our professionals understand the complex issues facing pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies. By making the intelligent connection between your business operations, markets and third-party relationships, we can help you get to the root cause of problems arising from impropriety. Our dedicated team includes CPAs, government contract analysts, economists, licensed pharmacists and certified fraud examiners, as well as former pharmaceutical executives, ethics and compliance officers and government auditors, investigators and prosecutors.
