09:00 AM Best Practices for Fighting Product Diversion

Companies frequently sell the same product both domestically and outside the United States. But they do not want the international
product diverted into the United States because it could be sold at a lower price, is in different packaging, or uses a different design
or formulation. Consider solutions for this problem along with the head of product protection for a global pharmaceutical company
and a nationally prominent product protection lawyer. Review a global pharmaceutical company’s successful effort to stop its diversion problem by internally policing its own distribution chain and externally using the courts to obtain injunctions and damages
against hundreds of diverters.
