The Whitelaw Compliance Group Advantage
Our forte is taking our experience and using it to help our clients solve their current challenges where there are no simple answers, just difficult choices.
Compliance Programs are no longer “optional,” but essential to any company’s success. It’s the law. The failure to have one so can be disastrous.
The challenge is to create a program that is effective, but ”fits” each company’s unique needs. This is where WCG can help. It’s about creating an effective ethics and compliance program without distracting from the overall objective of providing life-saving products to patients
We provide a broad range of compliance services. Perhaps the best way of understanding what WCG provides is to think of a medical technology or pharmaceutical company as a house. We help build and maintain a solid ground floor that is up to code (compliance). As a result, it is a floor that won’t collapse into the dark, dirty, unlit basement where the bogeyman lives (fines, penalties, legal actions, etc.).
For owners wanting to venture above the first floor, we coach them on how to properly frame the second story for growth. It is about a long-term relationship. It’s about working together; finding the right balance between operating at “zero risks” and staying competitive.
WCG’s advantage stems from flexibility and efficiency. Regardless of how robust the planning process is, no project approach can anticipate every eventuality. The key is being flexible enough to modify the approach gracefully and still achieve the objectives. With our unique blend of experiences (internal company/external consultant, drug/device, domestic/international), WCG can make the necessary adjustments and still meet our client’s needs.
It also makes us more efficient. More efficient in delivering the project plan, and in developing the compliance controls that effectively address our client’s Corporate Governance challenges. There simply is no substitute for hands-on experience.
