G2 Compliance Advisor January 2016

Charles C. Dunham, IV, an Associate in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Houston and New York offices, was quoted throughout a G2 Compliance Advisor article titled “Top 10 Compliance Issues and Tips for 2016.”

Following is an excerpt:

4. Individual Responsibility

Thanks to last year’s Yates Memo, discussion of liability for responsible officers and directors is a central compliance concern. “The Yates Memo is an enforcement tool and everyone should be concerned about this,” Dunham warns.

Compliance Tips: Dunham recommends compliance officers “make sure all directors, officers, and managers are properly educated and trained, not just sales and marketing staff. Make sure they are aware of their oversight responsibilities” he advises; “they can’t just defer to the compliance officer to make decisions.”
