Seton Hall Law School to Host ‘Managing Counterfeiting Issues In The Pharmaceutical Industry’ June 18

Newark, NJ, June 12, 2013 — The Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology at Seton Hall Law School will present “Managing Counterfeiting Issues in the Pharmaceutical Industry” on Tuesday, June 18 at Seton Hall Laws School in Newark from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Pharmaceutical counterfeiting poses a deadly threat to consumers and harms both the reputation and financial condition of pharmaceutical companies. 

Pharmaceutical companies are not the only ones facing this growing concern.  Pharmacies, hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, and others who are involved in marketing, distributing or purchasing pharmaceutical and medical device products are at risk.  Just one batch of counterfeit drugs could not only affect your reputation but could close down your company.

The law school’s program will identify practical, anti-counterfeiting strategies and discuss how drug companies can develop and implement tailored “best practices” to deter and combat counterfeiters.

This CLE program will feature industry leaders who will provide an overview of the counterfeit drug problem and discuss strategies to combat counterfeiters in the United States and worldwide.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • The use of technology in inventory tracking and product authentication
  • Employee training programs
  • The development of comprehensive investigative and enforcement strategies.

Panelists scheduled to participate are:

  • Catherine A. Begley, Regional Security Director for the North America Region, Merck
  • Kathleen H. Dooley, Partner, McGuireWoods LLP 
  • Owen J. McKeon, Director, Intellectual Property Department, Gibbons P.C.
  • David W. Opderbeck, Professor of Law and Director, Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology
  • Estelle J. Tsevdos, Ph.D., Director, Intellectual Property Department, Gibbons P.C.
