O’Melveny’s Kirman Pens Article on FCPA Enforcement Trends in the Healthcare Industry

January 06, 2016

 

O'Melveny & Myers partner David Kirman co-authored the article, “Current Trends in FCPA Enforcement in the Healthcare Industry,” which appears in the January 2016 edition of Compliance Today. The authors, Kirman and Vince Farhat of Holland & Knight, explain that healthcare companies’ frequent interactions with doctors, pharmacists, and foreign public hospital administrators expose them to particularly high FCPA risk. According to the article, healthcare companies conducting business in foreign countries “should reexamine their anti-bribery compliance policies to ensure they are doing enough to prevent and minimize FCPA violations.”

Los Angeles partner Kirman is a trial lawyer who draws on his experience as a former federal prosecutor to represent clients in government investigations, prosecutions, and business disputes.
