Our professionals understand the complex issues facing pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies. We have established experience helping companies evaluate and manage those aspects of their businesses that pose the greatest potential risks. Our dedicated team includes CPAs, certified fraud examiners, licensed pharmacists, former pharmaceutical executives, ethics and compliance officers as well as government auditors, investigators and prosecutors.
