We are bracing for the fight of the year as Congress and the White House go round-for-round over policies and legislation with sweeping impacts on government contractors. Companies cannot afford to simply place wagers on their business by guessing the outcome. In addition to getting ring-side seats for this political battle, contractors must continue to focus on their own vulnerabilities as well as recognizing opportunities, including developments and trends for contractor claims and terminations, the new Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order key provisions and potential legal challenges, FCA implications of the pending Supreme Court decision in Carter, the changing landscape of internal investigations, protecting intellectual property from your government customer, radical proposed changes to the small business regulations, and cybersecurity risk management.
Putting the gloves on and staying on top of the latest developments is now more important than ever. Join us as our government contracts, healthcare, corporate, labor and employment, and white collar law practitioners share their perspectives on current industry topics for this year’s battle in Washington’s center ring.
This year, we are pleased to offer two dates and locations - one in D.C. and one in California (May 14). The D.C. Session will include a Keynote by Professor Steven Schooner (@ProfSchooner) on “A Decade of Ethics Scandals.” The California session will include a special session highlighting unique issues facing companies who do business in California and/or with the State of California.
