MedCompli is a robust, secure SaaS platform with transparent, cost effective pricing and a unique subscription model that is perfect for the early to mid-size life science company.

Steve brings over 20 years of experience to his clients in regulatory compliance matters.

This unique blend of experiences and perspectives provides maximum credibility to his clients when addressing life science business and compliance issues.
Starting with the TAP case in 2001, which at $885 million was for many years the largest settlement in the pharmaceutical industry and which directly led to key reforms that changed commercial compliance practices, such as the OIG Compliance Guidance to Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and the PhRMA Code, to more recently at Warner Chilcott, which in 2013 was under federal criminal and civil investigation for alleged improper commercial activities, Steve has been recruited to address high-profile cases and to support legal, commercial and executive teams and Boards of Directors with his compliance expertise.
Steve has worked with a wide-variety of life science companies globally, to include the very largest and most prominent U.S., Japanese and European companies. Most recently, Steve has supported specialty pharma/biotech companies that are either preparing to launch their first commercial product or are in the early stages of doing so.
Prior to forming TRESTLE Compliance, LLC, Steve split his 22-year private-sector career between service as an in-house or outsourced Sr. VP or VP Chief Compliance Officer for several life science and healthcare companies and as a consultant, forming his own firms as well as serving as a non-equity partner for a “Big 4” firm.
Steve started his career as an officer in the United States Marine Corps (USMC), received various citations, decorations and a full scholarship to law school, served as a prosecutor and defense counsel, served in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and later was selected to serve as a counsel and professional staff member of the Government Operations Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.
