Internal Investigation & Compliance – Pharmaceutical Marketing & Sales Lawyers

In today’s complex business world, internal investigations, or audits, for compliance are mandatory to maintain a health company. Not only can audits strengthen a company’s relationship with its employees, but they can also foster a culture of compliance. Putting this into perspective, compliance keeps your company out of federal crosshairs.

Typically, the focus of compliance audits is narrow and defined. Nevertheless, it can cause concern among your employees. Documentation, visual inspections and employee interviews are guaranteed parts of the process. Questions about the work they perform can create internal tension among your workforce unless misunderstandings are handled correctly.

Since internal compliance is a critical aspect of running a solid business, using a third-party service with an objective view is probably best.

Understanding an Internal Investigation and Compliance Audit

Defining internal audits is helpful to understand the relationship to ensuring compliance. Whether your business is publicly held, privately owned, nonprofit or for-profit, internal reviews of operations is required on a regular basis.

Some reviews are legally required; others are simply best practices. Either way, the results can help you maintain a healthy functioning company and avoid penalties and fines due to noncompliance.

Types of Internal Compliance Audits

Basically, there are four types of internal audits. Industry, location, and, entity and regulatory requirements for your company distinguishes the type of audits you need.

• Contractual audits are designed to ensure that your company complies with customer specifications in contract requirements.
• Governmental audits are for companies – usually nonprofits – that receive grants or other types of funds that include contractual obligations.
• Industrial standards may apply to health care facilities and compliance with HIPAA regulations. Food handlers is another industry that have health regulations with constant oversight to ensure food safety standards are met.
• Risk management relates to workplace safety where compliance audits and constant monitoring are the norm.

Crimes revealed are often some form of theft or fraud. However, rarely will a company support prosecuting the employee or employee involved because they want to avoid bod publicity. If noncompliance with OSHA regulations results in severe injuries or death, a criminal charge will most likely follow.

Laws Governing Compliance Audits

Currently, there are no laws that specifically address internal compliance audits. However, a combination of these audits may fall within broader legislative guidelines. President Bush signed the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act of 2002 to deal with internal auditing and publicly held companies.

Internal auditing functions were greatly expanded under this Act. Senior management must sign off on all financial audits and the responsibilities of the Board of Directors increased. While financial audits are the focus of this Act, it does highlight the importance of self-policing for every company.


Penalties and punishments for violations that are uncovered by an internal compliance audit may vary based on the type of violation. Typically, when something violates the law, it will apply to civil statutes. Fines and court levied injunctions against the company are usually the resulting punishment.

For pharmacological companies, adhering to strict marketing guidelines is very important. Patients and doctors rely on the information these companies share, including advertising, to make decisions about different treatment options.

The United States has laws to address the relationship that sales representatives have with medical professionals. These include:

• Anti-bribery laws
• False Claims Act
• Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act
• U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

Pharmacological companies are encouraged, as well as expected, to follow these laws.

Pharmaceutical Marketing & Sales

In addition to following specific laws, pharmaceutical companies should remain proactive in monitoring and preventing unethical practices. Having strong sanctions in place may help to prevent specific behavior by representatives that could lead to a costly violation.

A self-regulating system can also help to ensure internal compliance audits will work in favor of the company. If potentially risky practices are revealed by an audit, implementing changes to reduce those risks should occur without delay.

Hire a Strong Legal Advocate

Hiring a strong legal advocate from Spodek Law Group, PC can help you expose any issues with compliance. Even if jail time is not part of the penalty for noncompliance, you want to avoid paying hefty fines. Whether you are a pharmaceutical company or other type of company, call us today so we can begin working towards the best possible outcome for your company.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
