Strategic Quote

"With the pandemic, there has been a lot of government money spent in the life science space, which could lead to an uptick in enforcement actions. Life sciences companies will be focused on management related to their global engagements with healthcare practitioners, healthcare organizations and patient advocacy organizations to have a full view of their data and reporting to ensure they are complying with the laws and regulations.”

-John Patrick Oroho, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, Porzio Life Sciences LLC
