GRx Today

Through integrity, accountability, and a focus on success, we have created a new company culture.

1. The first step in achieving this was to retain new counsel to provide advice on corporate compliance and business ethics;  Ira Halpern is an experienced corporate attorney from Meltzer, Lippe, Goldstein & Breitstone, LLP, a prominent Long Island law firm.

2. An independent monitor, Roscoe C. Howard, Jr., of the law firm of Barnes & Thornburg LLP was retained to evaluate and report on GRx compliance and internal programs. Mr. Howard was the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia from 2001-04.

Roscoe C. Howard, Jr.

Roscoe Howard is the managing partner of the Washington, D.C., office of Barnes & Thornburg. Having tried more than 100 cases as a federal prosecutor, Roscoe monitors and oversees company-wide compliance programs; assesses and reports back on a company’s compliance and ethics programs.

3. An independent trustee, Alan Trachtman, acts as sole shareholder pursuant to a voting trust agreement, which was put in place to eliminate the involvement in the company by the former CEO and CFO.  Mr. Trachtman is a former state prosecutor who served 21 years in the Kings County District Attorney's office, where he served as Chief of the Supreme Court Trial Bureau.

4. An independent CPA firm was hired to oversee and validate distribution of funds to customers.

5. Customers now have the ability to select how they wish to age their indated products, with regular communication between GRx and the customer.

6. An Escrow Agreement with the Company’s bank is in place; whereby funds received are validated prior to distribution.

7. A Business Conduct and a Corporate Compliance Program was developed which is regularly reviewed and updated to include:

  • Procurement integrity procedures and policies
  • Government disclosure requirements
  • Internal audits of company policies and procedures adhering to the highest levels of transparency
  • Confidential and secure employee hotline
  • Improved and enhanced IT systems including a robust customer portal with complete visibility to all transactions.
