DOJ’s recent announcement of its establishment of a Procurement Collusion Strike Force elevates the risk of antitrust enforcement for government contractors large and small. The Strike Force will train the acquisition workforce at the federal, state, and local levels to identify and refer suspected bidding misconduct for investigation and potential prosecution.

Crowell & Moring’s coordinated team of antitrust and government contracts lawyers, including former antitrust prosecutors and government procurement fraud lawyers, will discuss the current antitrust risk environment and identify proactive steps contractors can take to reduce potential exposure.

We will provide a CLE certificate of attendance and other materials to use in seeking continuing education credits.

Registration begins at 8:00 am.
