Emerging Threats from the Responsible Corporate Officer Doctrine

FDA & Healthcare of counsel Arianne Callender will present at the West LegalEdcenter's webinar "Emerging Threats from the Responsible Corporate Officer Doctrine."

This program will examine how the responsible corporate officer doctrine has evolved over the years from a procedural device first used by the FDA in misdemeanor cases to being used by federal and state agencies in administrative, civil, and criminal proceedings. The speakers will examine cases where the doctrine has been used to assist in proving up liability under the FCPA, in clawback actions under Sarbanes-Oxley, and in other agency proceedings, and will explain how courts are reluctant to allow individuals to claim that they had effectively delegated the responsibility for preventing such violations to others. The speakers will address how the RCO doctrine may impact the corporate compliance activities of companies who offer goods and services to the public which could potentially lead to an assertion of liability under this effectively strict liability theory.
