Bruce D. Armon, a Partner in the Business Department who concentrates his practice on healthcare law, discusses the impact charges against a sales representative will have on promotional practices of pharmaceutical companies.

"Pharmaceutical sales representatives need to fully understand, appreciate, and comply with internal compliance policies and procedures," Mr. Armon said. "Second, if they are asked to participate in an activity that is inconsistent or not addressed in the in-house policy, they need to confirm that the company's legal counsel and compliance officer have approved the initiative."
