The Law Firm of Levi & Korsinsky Launches an Investigation Into Possible Breaches of Fiduciary Duties and Unjust Enrichment by the Board of Directors of Abbott Laboratories, Inc.
Date:12/2/2011

NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Levi & Korsinsky is investigating potential claims on behalf of long-term shareholders of Abbott Laboratories, Inc. ("Abbott" or the "Company") (NYSE: ABT) concerning improper conduct by the Company regarding the marketing and sale of the anti-seizure medication Depakote.

For more information, click here: http://zlk.9nl.com/abbott-laboratories-abt.

From as early as 1998, Abbott is alleged to have trained sales representatives to promote off-label uses of Depakote and provide illegal kick-backs to physicians.  Consequently, Abbott was investigated by the Department of Justice ("DOJ").  In an October 19, 2011 SEC filing, Abbott disclosed that the Company had reserved $1.5 billion of litigation reserves "related to ongoing settlement discussions" with the DOJ.   The investigation focuses, among other things, on the conduct of Abbott's Board of Directors in affirmatively adopting, implementing, and condoning a business strategy based on deliberate and widespread illegal conduct that has now resulted in substantial potential damages to the Company.

Levi, Esq. either via email at jlevi@zlk.com or by telephone at (212) 363-7500, toll-free: (877) 363-5972, or visit http://www.zlk.com/abbott-laboratories-abt.html.
